“Stormy Liberal is one of a select number of Breeders’ Cup winners to repeat the feat. Always dead game, the former claimer’s final half-dozen career victories had connections and fans regularly holding their collective breaths as his biggest margin was just a neck. The tough and classy veteran raced on three continents, earned an Eclipse as champion turf male in 2018, and retired to Old Friends after his 2019 season.
“When owner David Bernsen retired Stormy to us, I was thrilled,” said Michael Blowen, president of Old Friends. “The two-time Breeders’ Cup winner arrived with a fan following and his owner’s love. And earned the respect of everyone at Old Friends who adore him and his best friend, Patch.”
