US Gr1 Star Fleet Indian In-Foal To Storm Cat
In the US, multiple Gr1-winning 5YO mare Fleet Indian (last season's Champion Older female who sustained a career-ending injury in the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Distaff on November 4 at Churchill Downs) "has recovered from her injuries & is in-foal to Storm Cat," reported thoroughbredinternet.com. She "will be entered in the 2007 Keeneland November sale". Fleet Indian (Indian Charlie-Hustleeta, by Afleet) was pulled up as favorite in the Breeders' Cup & underwent surgery at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington to stabilise a suspensory tear in her left front leg. Fleet Indian notched 8 successive victories prior to the Distaff (including the Gr1 Personal Ensign Stakes, Gr1 Beldame Stakes & Gr2 Delaware Handicap); overall she won 13 of 19 starts & earned US$1,704,513.
