Eclipse Award winner Fleet Indian produced her first foal, a Storm Catcolt, at Summer Wind Farm near Georgetown, Ky. The farm is owned by Frank Lyon Jr. and his wife, Jane.

Summer Wind, the breeder of the newborn colt, bought Fleet Indian privately from Paul Saylor after she failed to meet her reserve at the 2007 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. Bidding had stopped at $3.9 million. Taylor Made Sales Agency consigned Fleet Indian on behalf of Saylor, who raced the mare during her 2006 championship season. As a 5-year-old that year, Fleet Indian won six stakes before suffering a career-ending injury in the Emirates Airline Breeders' Cup Distaff (gr. I).

Bred in New York by Thomas/Lakin, Fleet Indian (Indian Charlie--Hustleeta, by Afleet) earned $1,704,513 during her career and won 13 of her 19 races. She is booked to A.P. Indy.
