Half-brother to Gorella looks smart at Brighton

GARY Moore appears to have a smart prospect on his hands in Jupiter Storm, who obliged at the third time of asking by two-and-a-half lengths in the mile juvenile maiden at Brighton on Thursday.

Galileo: sire of yet another promising maiden winner

The 16th British and Irish juvenile winner this season by Coolmore's champion sire elect Galileo, Jupiter Storm is bred to be talented as a half-brother to Grade 1 Beverly D Stakes heroine Gorella. Other siblings include the Grade 2-placed Porto Santo and the Listed-placed Thanks Again.

Unsurprisingly, their dam, the Jeune Homme mare Exciting Times, was hot property when she came on the market last autumn in foal to Sea The Stars, selling for $900,000 to IBS.

Jupiter Storm, however, was not so popular when offered at last year's Tattersalls December Sale; consigned by his part breeder Watership Down Stud, he was sold to G M Moore Racing for 55,000gns.
