Multiple Grade 1-stakes winner Got Stormy is being pointed to the $125,000 Honey Fox (G3) Feb. 27 at Gulfstream Park after breezing ‘extremely well’ at trainer Mark Casse’s training center in Ocala Wednesday morning.
The 6-year-old daughter of Get Stormy breezed a half-mile in 48.40 seconds while tuning up for her scheduled 2021 debut in the mile turf stakes on the Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth (G2) undercard.
“I’m going to move her to Palm Meadows soon so she can start breezing over the turf,” Casse said.
Got Stormy, who broke her maiden over the Gulfstream turf course Feb. 25, 2018, beat the boys in the 2019 Fourstardave (G1) at Saratoga and went on to win the 2019 Matriarch (G1) at Del Mar.
Last season, Got Stormy won the Kentucky Downs Ladies Sprint (G3) and the Franklin County (G3) at Keeneland back to back before completing her 2021 campaign with a fifth-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) at Keeneland.
Got Stormy, who campaigned for Gary Barber, was sold for $2,750,000 to Spendthrift Farm at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall Mixed Sale in November.
“She went through the sale. She has a new owner – Spendthrift bought her. We brought her to Ocala, as we always do. She had time off. She’s ready,” Casse said. “She gets so excited when she starts training and she worked extremely well this morning.
