First of Storm Cat's last three possible foals born

THE first foal from the final crop of Storm Cat has been born at Denali Stud near Lexington, Kentucky. The new arrival is a bay filly out of Earle I. Mack's mare Western Princess, a daughter of Gone West.

Denali Stud manager Gary Bush said:"She's a very leggy filly and both she and the mare appear in good health. We called Mr. Mack with the good news and he is very pleased. We are excited to have them on the farm and expect many of our visitors will want to see this filly."

Storm Cat was retired from stud duties at Overbrook Farm in Kentucky last May, after suffering from declining fertility. It is believed that Western Princess was one of only three mares Storm Cat successfully impregnated in his last season.

A 26-year-old son of Storm Bird, Storm Cat stood at a fee of $500,000 from 2002 until 2007. He established himself as not only an excellent source of outstanding runners, but also as a sire of sires with sons such as Giant's Causeway, Hennessy and Tale Of The Cat.

Overbrook Farm announced last month that Storm Cat's semen would be offered to breeders of Quarter Horses.
