While reading here at the “Stallions” section the following thread:
“Storm Cat to be QH sire”
( http://www.pedigreequery.com/forum/view ... 820#204820 )
the following query came to my mind:


Is it possible to employ Storm Cat as a sire with a few Thoroughbred mares, at a reduced non-guaranteed price, with the understanding that the resulting foal will only serve as a future sire or broodmare and will not run? I think that breeders of Thoroughbred horses of flamboyant colors may be interested. After all, he has proven an affinity with sabino-ness.

Opinions?

Not a chance. The Jockey Club is not going to change the rules at this point.

I am not referring to permitting artificial insemination Thoroughbred foals from him, but to employ him as a limited covering sire, but with no guarantees at all for the remaining time of his life, and for a very nominal reduced fee.

Better yet, let them put STORM CAT, and other living greats in a "GENE BANK" and clone them one day if the rules ever change that the resulting foal would be registerable. Other horse breeds already allow it!

If he was a private stallion they would probably let him cover a few mares just to see if they would catch (it kind of depends on what is causing his infertility) but he is owned by a syndicate I believe which means WHOSE mares would be the lucky ones? But even some private stallions I've seen have been retired even with really good foals on the ground still running. It's like it's a reward for a stallion to be pensioned but I suspect most stallions would disagree! (there are some that would not of course). Now for a MARE... :P
