1st Winner For Gr1-Winning US Freshman Stormello
Deceased US Gr1-winning 7YO freshman stallion Stormello (Stormy Atlantic-Wilshewed, by Carson City) recorded his 1st winner when 2YO filly Ay Mamita (Stormello-Pantaleta, by Equalize) scored over 4.5 furlongs at Charles Town Races in West Virginia for trainer Oscar Modica. Stormello (who stood for US$3,500 at Vinery in Kentucky before dying in April due to complications from colic) has 36 2YOs in his 1st-crop. On the track, Stormello notched 3 wins (including the Gr1 Hollywood Futurity & Gr2 Norfolk Breeders' Cup Stakes) & 4 placings (including the Gr2 Del Mar Futurity, Gr2 Best Pal Stakes, Gr2 Fountain Of Youth Stakes & Gr2 Woody Stephens Stakes) from 11 starts for US$700,100 earnings.
