Keeneland Day-1: US$3m Storm Cat Colt
And the John Ferguson-Sheikh Mohammed combination paid US$3 million for another Storm Cat colt out of 1997 champion 3YO filly Ajina (who won the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Distaff, Gr1 Coaching Club American Oaks & Gr1 Mother Goose Stakes en route to the 1997 Eclipse Award). The colt was consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency & bred in Kentucky by Stonerside Stable. Ferguson told thoroughbredtimes.com: "He's a very athletic colt with a wonderful pedigree, from a nice farm. Sheikh Mohammed was particularly high on him. I've seen him 4 or 5 times over the last year & always thought a lot of him. Let's hope he runs the way he looks."
