1st Stakes-Winner For US Freshman Sire Primal Storm
US Gr3-winning 8YO freshman stallion Primal Storm (Storm Boot-Primistal, by Stalwart) recorded his 1st stakes-winner when unbeaten juvenile filly Lady Primal (Primal Storm-Lady Seneca, by Seneca Jones) raced away for a 5.75-lengths victory against the males in the US$50,000 Listed Manor Downs Thoroughbred Futurity (4.5 furlongs) for 2YOs at Manor Downs in Texas. Lady Primal (ridden by Erik McNeil for trainer Cash Asmussen) defeated fellow filly Blushing Sis (Giacomo-Three City Sisters, by Carson City) & the colt Jada Bo (Jadacus-Mahitabelle, by Idabel). Lady Primal (a US$1,900 yearling at the 2009 Texas August Sale) now has 2 wins from 2 starts for US$33,600 earnings. Her freshman sire Primal Storm stands at Laredo-based Asmussen Horse Center in Texas.
