Justify Half-Sister Retired


Egyptian Storm | Patty Wolfe

Egyptian Storm (Pioneerof the Nile–Stage Magic, by Ghostzapper), a half-sister to Triple Crown winner Justify (Scat Daddy), has been retired from racing. The 3-year-old filly will visit Quality Road and owners Robert S. Evans and West Point Thoroughbreds expect to offer her at public auction at one of the Kentucky breeding stock sales in November.

Egyptian Storm finished fifth over the Tampa Bay Downs turf Feb. 20 in her lone start. She came out of the race with a splint injury that would have sidelined her until summer.

Evans and West Point purchased the filly for $230,000 at the 2017 Keeneland September sale, four months before Justify made his career debut. She is also a half-sister to graded stakes winner The Lieutenant (Street Sense).

Street Magic’s now 2-year-old One More City (Will Take Charge) RNA’d for $1.75 million at last year’s Keeneland September sale. The mare produced a colt by Pioneerof the Nile in 2018 and was bred back to Quality Road.
