Storm Boot euthanized


Crestwood Farm near Lexington, Ky., announced Thursday that it has euthanized the stallion Storm Boot, sire of millionaire Bourbon Belle and 44 other stakes winners, due to chronic degenerative tendonitis and subsequent laminitis.

The 18-year-old Storm Cat horse was euthanized at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. One of the first stallions to stand at Crestwood, Storm Boot also sired such stakes winners as Hurricane Bertie and Night Patrol.
