Got Stormy Favored in Distaff Turf Mile

|

Got Stormy | Coglianese

Fan favorite Got Stormy (Get Stormy) is the 8-5 morning-line favorite while facing six rivals in the GII Longines Churchill Distaff Turf Mile S. at Churchill Downs Saturday. The chestnut mare concluded her 2020 campaign with a fifth-place effort in the GI Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint at Keeneland last November, just a day before selling for $2.75 million to Spendthrift at the Fasig-Tipton November sale. Now co-owned with Myracehorse.com, the 6-year-old returned to just get her nose on top of the reopposing Zofelle (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) in the one-mile GIII Honey Fox S. at Gulfstream Feb. 27 last time out.

Owned by Heider Family Stables, Zofelle was third over the Churchill turf in the GIII Mint Julep S. last May and won her first graded race when scoring a two-length victory in the Jan. 23 GIII Marshua's River S.

Peter Brant's Blowout (GB) (Dansili {GB}) has proved herself gritty in defeat following narrow runner-up efforts behind stablemate Viadera (GB) (Bated Breath {GB}) after setting rapid splits in the Sept. 26 GIII Noble Damsel S. at Belmont and the Nov. 29 GI Matriarch S. at Del Mar last time out.
