Storm Cat retired after 21 years

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - One of the top stallions in thoroughbred
racing history is being retired after 21 years.
Overbrook Farm in Lexington announced Tuesday that Storm Cat
will no longer stand as a stallion. Stallion consultant Ric Waldman
says a decision was made due to the horse's declining fertility
rate.
Storm Cat has produced 160 stakes winners who collectively
raised more than $112 million. He also formerly commanded a stud
fee of $500,000 - believed to be the highest ever in the business.
Waldman says the 25-year-old horse will continue to live on the
farm. Three mares are currently pregnant with Storm Cat foals.
