HALLANDALE BEACH - Multiple Grade 1-stakes winner Got Stormy is being pointed to the $125,000, Gr. III Honey Fox Feb. 27 at Gulfstream Park after breezing ‘extremely well’ at trainer Mark Casse’s training center in Ocala Wednesday morning.
The 6-year-old daughter of Get Stormy breezed a half-mile in 48.40 seconds while tuning up for her scheduled 2021 debut in the mile turf stakes on the Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth undercard.
“I’m going to move her to Palm Meadows soon so she can start breezing over the turf,” Casse said.
Got Stormy, who broke her maiden over the Gulfstream turf course on Feb. 25, 2018, beat the boys in the 2019 Gr. I Fourstardave at Saratoga and went on to win the 2019 Gr. I Matriarch at Del Ma
Last season, Got Stormy won the Gr. III Kentucky Downs Ladies Sprint and the Gr. III Franklin County at Keeneland back-to-back before completing her 2021 campaign with a fifth-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Keeneland
Got Stormy, who formerly campaigned for Gary Barber, was sold for $2,750,000 to Spendthrift Farm at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Mixed Sale in November
“She went through the sale," Casse said. "She has a new owner – Spendthrift bought her. We brought her to Ocala, as we always do. She had time off. She’s ready. She gets so excited when she starts training and she worked extremely well this morning."
Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed: The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $300,000 today. The multi-race wager went unsolved for the second racing day following Saturday’s mandatory payout. Multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $11,760 Wednesday.
WHO’S HOT: Corey Lanerie made three visits to the winner’s circle after scoring aboard Fuego Caliente ($32) in Race 1, Ludington ($10) in Race 3 and Bimini ($8.40) in Race 4. Trainer Peter Walder saddled Ludington and Bimini.
