Stormy Liberal going to new trainer
after Miller recommends retirement
STATEMENT FROM TRAINER PETER MILLER
I am sorry to announce that Stormy Liberal will be leaving our barn to continue racing under another trainer. Both my veterinarian and I believe the horse should be retired. In fact, we had already started inquiring for him to retire to Old Friends so he could live out his days in comfort and good care, and allow visitors to enjoy him up close.
It is very rare to claim a horse for 40k, win two Breeders’ Cup Races and earn the prestigious Eclipse Award. It is my professional opinion that he has given and accomplished enough. While the owners certainly have every right to make these choices, and I respect that, I would like the record to show that I was not in favor of this decision.
Stormy has been very special to our team, and to me. We will miss him and hope for the best.
