Stormin' Eddie, 57 starts, a black-type placed winner, has won our hearts.
Born in 2002, Stormin' Eddie earned almost $170,000 over the course of his career. With 57 starts to his credit, Eddie was in the money 44% of the time. He competed in Florida, Louisiana, Illinois, Keeneland Racecourse in Kentucky, Churchill Downs, and Kentucky Downs. In 2012, at the age of 10, the re-injury of a bowed tendon permanently ended his racing career.
Eddie is known for his tremendous heart and generosity. He's enjoying his retirement now under the gentle care of Thoroughbred Retirement Network of Louisiana, and he happiest when he has a job to look forward to.
