Hip # 109 2011 c. by TIZNOW out of COOL STORM went through the sales ring yesterday at The Fasig-Tipton Florida Two-Year-Old in Training Sale bringing a final bid of $525,000 from Robert Clay and Three Chimneys Farm. WinStar Farm was the underbidder on the colt. The colt was originally purchased for $200,000 by the Bradley Thoroughbreds Pinhook Venture at the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.
COOL STORM is a half sister to G1 Winner BLUEGRASS CAT and Stakes Winner SONOMA CAT. The colt previewed in 10.3 on Friday at Palm Meadows Training Center and caught the attention of all the major players. He was a standout individual from the beginning and we look forward to seeing him on the racetrack this year!

Hip # 39 Consecrate (2011 f. by Pulpit out of Curious Conundrum), Hip # 55 2011 c. by Arch out of Falling Springs, and Hip # 60 2011 c. by More Than Ready out of Frontier Beauty.
