The Better Talk Now Stakes — named for the Graham Motion-trained runner who took the 2004 Breeders’ Cup Turf — is Wednesday’s Spa feature.
Storming Inti, the Pennsylvania-bred who is ranked third on the list of three-year-olds in the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred/The Racing Biz Top Midlantic-bred Poll, is the lone horse bred in the region in the Better Talk Now. Bred in Pennsylvania by Brushwood Stable, Storming Inti is trained by Chad Brown for Santa Rosa Racing Stables. He’s a son of Stormy Atlantic out of the unraced Pulpit mare Tarfaya. Storming Inti owns a win, a second, and three thirds from six starts this year and sports an overall record of 10-4-1-4. He’s won three stakes and earned $381,055. Storming Inti is 8-5 on the morning line.
