Stormello (Stormy Atlantic-Wilshewed by Carson City) is trained by Bill Currin and co-owned by Bill Currin and Al Eisman. He trained mostly in California and raced in both California and on the East Coast. Stormello has now been retired to Vinery in Kentucky.
Although his races have not always had the outcomes that his connections and fans would have liked, he is a horse with real heart and determination. He had an unfortunate trip in the Kentucky Derby, having been boxed in by two other horses toward the stretch, but his graded stakes earnings proved that he had every right to be there.
Stormello was bred to be a sprinter, and Bill Currin's decision to shorten up his distances after the Kentucky Derby should be a good one. Before the Woody Stephens (in which Stormello showed), Bill Currin gave an interview in which he said that they are pointing Stormello toward the Breeder's Cup this fall.
UPDATE: Stormello shipped into Monmouth Park for the Haskell Invitational, but colicked not long after arriving. Although he has recovered from the colic, he has yet to work out. Although Stormello's fan remain optimistic, it is looking less and less likely that he will make the Breeder's Cup this year.
