RIP – SUMMER SQUALL THE HORSE


EXPIRED: 09/15/09 – Summer Squall, 22, the 1990 Preakness Stakes winner, had a good old life, winning 13 of 20 career starts & earning $1,844,282 during three racing seasons. Alas, old age also catches up to horses, so he was put out to pasture for realsies.

Summer Squall finished second in the 1990 Kentucky Derby behind Unbridled, then returned the favor in the Preakness following a thrilling stretch duel in which he pulled away along the rail.

He did not compete in the Belmont Stakes but returned as a 4-year-old and won the Fayette Handicap in 1991.

Too old to race any longer, Summer Squall went to stud at Lane’s End Farm in Versailles, Kentucky. He was the proud papa of 1999 Kentucky Derby winner Charismatic and former champion 2-year-old filly Storm Song.

The former champ was euthanized at Lane’s End.
