Sullimar Stable’s Get Stormy turned in a five-furlong work over the Oklahoma turf course Aug. 18, his first since winning the Fourstardave (gr. IIT) Aug. 1 at the Spa. Clockers caught the son of Stormy Atlantic in :59.60, the fastest of 33 works at the distance.
“He worked great,” said trainer Tom Bush. “He’s a very special work horse anyway, very willing – he goes slowly and finishes extremely well.”
Bush said that Get Stormy would make his next start in the Bernard Baruch (gr. IIT), scheduled for Aug. 27 at Saratoga.
Of the decision to run in the Bernard Baruch, which at 1 1/8 miles is an untested distance for the colt, Bush said he was primarily tempted by the option to stay home and run the horse over a track he loves.
“The distance will be a brand new experience for him, but he’s won three times over this course, so we’ll give it a try,” Bush said.
