Wiki

Storm Cat (foaled in 1983) was an American Thoroughbred stallion whose breeding fee during the peak of his stud career was $500,000, the highest in the world. As such, he was one of the few horses with a 24 hour armed guard.

He was sired by Storm Bird, a son of Northern Dancer. His dam is Terlingua, who was sired by Secretariat. During his racing career the bay won the Grade I Young America Stakes at The Meadowlands, and finished second by a nose in that year's championship deciding race, the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.

Best known for the success of the racehorses he has sired and his many successful sons at stud, Storm Cat stood at stud at Overbrook Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. In 1999 and 2000, he was the leading sire in North America. As of August 2008, he has sired 32 winners of Group 1/Grade 1 stakes, 99 winners of group or graded stakes races, and 166 stakes winners worldwide who have earnings in excess of $115 million. He was the leading sire of stakes winners in North America in 2005.
