Blazing Sunset - brokedown at 3 in 2006. Never raced again, never stood at stud. I'm guessing he was put down
In the Gold - broodmare had a handful of foals in the US, then was sent to Australia
Desert Stormer - pensioned at Dell Ridge https://www.thoroughbredracing.com/arti ... ver-world/
Lunar Spook - feel like something happened to her in 2003, as she had her last foal this year and was never bred again. I know the Craigs had really bad luck with some of their mares, Exchange died after foaling her only foal, Different and her first foal died during foaling, and memory says something happened to Lunar Spook too but it might just be that I'm confusing her with one of the others bad luck. Then of course, Paseana, had severe fertility issues and only produced one foal

Desert Stormer’s 2010 foal by Bernardini, who was born at the Keeneland January sale and named Bornatthetrack, is still racing, mostly at Hastings. He last won in July 2018 and last raced earlier this month.

Looks like Desert Stormer was 24 when she delivered her last foal "Fly", a 2014 filly by Brilliant Speed.

Fly may still be on the track as her last workouts were at Monmouth in June 2019. Equibase shows Fly having a 15-2-4-1 record with five 4th place finishes, $112,730 earnings, and last start in April 2019 at Gulfstream. Her runs are mostly AOCs offering $20-25k for the winner, and she's not being put up for claim.
Here's Fly's Equibase if you want to follow her: http://www.equibase.com/profiles/Result ... y=T&rbt=TB

Digging around a bit more for Desert Stormer's other later-year offspring:

Bornatthetrack - 2010 gelding by Bernadini mentioned in an earlier post here is running in $4,000 claimers at Hastings ...

Kohili - 2011 filly by Candy Ride(ARG) - unraced, shipped to Australia where she produced three foals:
  • 2015 - Rich and Reckless - gelding by Smart Missile(AUS) - poor guy was euthanized Oct 2018 after breaking down in what was his 9th start. Record was 8-1-0-1.
  • 2016 - Dorothy Rose - filly by Dundeel(NZ) - not yet raced?
  • 2017 - colt by Dundeel(NZ) - not yet raced?
Kohili was in foal to Star Witness(AUS) when she was purchased by Stonereath Farm at the Magic Millions 2018 Gold Coast National Broodmare Sale in May 2018. Australia studbook shows her being exported to the US on 23 June 2018. Stonereath's website is down and while their Facebook page has some cute mare+foal shots from this spring, nothing is labeled and there's no traffic or conversation.

Neruda - 2012 colt by Hart Spun - sold 2013 for $210,000 Northwest Stud

Tizahandful - 2013 filly by Tiz Wonderful - last out in March 2018, with a 17-1-1-3 record, in Allowance company, for $54,865.


If my math is right, Desert Stormer produced 11 winners out of 12 foals to race!

The 2016 would only be a 2yo until Aug 1 when she officially turns 3 & the 2017 is currently only a yearling who was sold in Feb for AUS$55,000

In The Gold had a filly by Fastnet Rock (arguably the best Aus sire) last September

Soaring Free retired to Sam-Son Farm with some of their other geldings. I think he’s still alive.
