Exactly!
One may say that Wind in Her Hair is the best partner Sunday Silence ever met, too. :D

The Breeders’ Cup heroine whose influence is felt all over the world

Kent Desormeaux crouched low over the Desert Stormer’s withers, urging her on through the mud. A G3-winning mare in a field of colts, Desert Stormer had no business being on the lead in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint. With Mr. Greeley on her flank, she dug in deeper, repelling his challenge and splashing across the Belmont Park wire. She upset the 1995 Sprint - only her fourth stakes win - paying $31 to win.

That was 22 years ago. Now, Desert Stormer is 28 and living out her days in a pasture at Dell Ridge Farm in Lexington. She is oblivious to the fact that her daughters have gone on to be both successful racemares and producers all over the world. Instead she is simply a horse, sharing a field with three other pensioned mares. She is lovingly cared for, but is a long way from where she started.

I was just flipping through my copy of the Bloodhorse Breeders Cup edition. She ran tough in that race, so much heart! I love reading about the old girls!

This was posted in the 'In Memoriam 2018' thread' - Dreaming of Anna, champion 2-year-old filly of 2006, died January 9 of a ruptured aorta. She was only 14.

It was originally reported in the DRF.

An updated article is on page 7 of the Bloodhorse Daily PDF

Beholder confirmed to be in foal to Uncle Mo

carole

Beholder should be getting close to foaling her Uncle Mo colt. Not today or tomorrow, but pretty soon.

I believe Spendthrift is revamping Beholder's website with a blog that will keep fans updated with how she and baby B are doing.
A filly named Ruffian...

Eine Stute namens Danedream...

Une pouliche se nommant Trêve...

Kincsem nevű kanca...


And a Queen named Beholder

Love The Chase is currently expecting a foal by Pioneerof The Nile and is going to Uncle Mo. She has a yearling half-brother by Tapit to California Chrome.

Her 3-year-old son and full brother to Chrome, Faversham, is being pointed to the California Cup Derby on Feb. 19. Her two fillies are now broodmares.
