South Australian trainer/owner/breeder, Craig Curtis, has had some decent horseflesh go through his stable in recent years with the 4-time stakes winner On Focus springing to mind.
Storm Brewing might have a way to go to catch up, but took a fair leap forward with a command performance at Morphettville on 28 November, winning over the 1600m after a pair of placings at the track at his previous two outings.
Well named – Storm Brewing is by Desert Sun from the Mystery Storm mare In a Teacup – the 3YO was bred at Eliza Park and sold to Craig at last year’s Adelaide Magic Millions for $43,000.
Also the dam of Melbourne winner Tassology, In a Teacup is a half sister to multiple Group One winner Heroicity and hails from the immediate family of top Kiwi filly Highflying.
Craig has sent several mares to Eliza Park over the past couple of seasons and, word has it, there’s a cracking Magnus foal at foot out of his winning Al Awir mare Not Always, dam of Hong Kong Group winner Always Flying.
