Stormy Atlantic's stud fee set at $30K for 2013


Stormy Atlantic, currently ranked 12th on the general sire list, will stand the 2013 breeding season for $30,000 stands and nurses, Hill 'n' Dale Farms announced on Monday.

Stormy Atlantic was leading freshman sire in 2006 and has 13 stakes winners to date this year, including Grade 1 winners Get Stormy and Next Question. An 8-year-old son of Storm Cat, Stormy Atlantic also ranks second on the North American turf sire list for 2012.

"Ever since his first Kentucky crop hit the track in 2006, Stormy Atlantic has ranked among the top 15 sires in North America," Hill 'n' Dale president John G. Sikura said. "Over the past seven years, only Giant's Causeway, Smart Strike, and Distorted Humor can also make this claim."
