  • This horse has been seen to windsuck

Purple Storm is a nice, big strong mare, she is correct and sound and has no vices or issues. A lovely natured mare she is very easy to handle and is just an all-round good style of horse.

Purple Storm throws the same qualities into her offspring as well with size, scope, conformation and attitude all attributes that are present in her foals. Purple Storm to date has produced two foals, her eldest is an unraced two-year-old colt followed by a yearling filly, both by the supremely bred young stallion in Moshe. She was covered again last season by the same stallion but is currently not in foal.

Purple Storm was a very handy racetrack performer, a two time winner over 1200m during her career which included victory at Metropolitan level in Victoria. Having also competed up to stakes level Purple Storm was unlucky not to claim blacktype on her pedigree when finishing 4th in the Listed MVRC William Crockett Stakes behind quality gallopers Angelic Light and Agueda.

With residual value through her pedigree Purple Storm displays the proven cross of Danehill sire line over a Sir Tristram line mare. The evidence of such a cross is no clearer than in the first generation of Purple Storm’s pedigree, not only a dual winner herself but her full-brother Sergeant Hightower was a five time winner and prizemoney earnings of $111,000. Her half-sister Two Hills, by another son of Danehill in Hillman was a racetrack star, winning seven races and more than $360,000 in stakes money.

Purple Storm is by Churchill Downs who has made his mark on the Australian thoroughbred industry by producing stakes performed progeny such as CHURCHILL DANCER, KILLUA CASTLE, GIRL GUIDE, SUPER LIFELINE, MISS MIDDLETON etc. Her dam FIRHILL (by Marauding), is an outstanding producer having had 8 foals to race for 6 winners.

Purple Storm offers the opportunity to buy a young mare from a running, winning family and would definitely suit both breeders looking for a commercial proposition or breed to race enthusiasts alike.
