 Thruthestorm, a chestnut son of Attila’s Storm racing for Pierre J. and Leslie Amestoy, unleashed a strong stretch rally to win the January 8, 6-furlong Corralito Steak House Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds at Sunland Park.
Ridden by Luis Fuentes for trainer Todd Fincher, Thruthestorm defeated New Mexico Jeremy by a half of a length while stopping the timer in 1:11.65. The gelding earned the $60,000 winner’s share of a $100,000 purse.
Thruthestorm was bred by Dan Delaney. The gelding’s sire, the late Attila’s Storm, was a graded stakes winning Kentucky-bred son of Forest Wildcat. Raced in five states, including New York and California, from 2004-07, Attila’s Storm earned $534,983 from 18 starts,
and his five wins included a 1 1/4-length victory in the 2007 Toboggan Handicap (G3) at Aqueduct Racetrack.
Attila’s Storm has sired 27 official black-type stakes winners and the earners of more than $17.8 million from 13 crops, including multiple stakes winners Bella Dona, Diabolical Storm, Waltzing Attila and Stormin The Jewels. The stallion died following colic surgery on June 23, 2021.
Thruthestorm is out of Thruthelookinglass, an unraced 10-year-old New Mexico-bred daughter
of the Storm Cat stallion Dome. Thruthelookinglass has foaled three winners from as many starters.
Thruthestorm’s second dam, Ondisplay, is a winning New Mexico-bred daughter of the In Excess (IRE) stallion
In Excessive Bull. The gelding’s third dam, the winning Kentucky-bred Victory Gallop mare Victory Girl, produced
seven winners from eight starters, including Excessive Victory, a full sister to Ondisplay who won the 2009 La Senora Handicap (R) at Sunland Park.
Thruthestorm traces back to his fourth dam, Usual Lies, a winning World Appeal mare who ran third in
the filly division of the 1998 Texas Open Futurity (R) and was a half-sister to Delta Wolf, a multiple stakes winner in Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Kansas from 1991-95, and stakes winner and 1999 Adirondack Stakes (G2) runner-up Miss Wineshine.
Thruthestorm was making his season debut in the Corralito Steak House Stakes, as he ended her juvenile campaign with a second-place finish in a 6-furlong first-level allowance for state-breds at Zia Park on December 12. The gelding has won two of six races and has banked $96,680.
Antonios Mark, the 9-5 favorite in the field of nine, ran third, a head behind runner-up New Mexico Jeremy. George
Who, Ol’ McClintock, Smartsrealgood, New Cut Road, Beach Runner and Clue completed the order of finish.
New Mexico Jeremy earned $20,000
for his owner, Stable HMA. A finalist in
last year’s 5-furlong, $152,000 Mountain
Top Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs and 6-furlong, $330,000 New Mexico State Fair Futurity (R) at Albuquerque Downs, the dark bay or brown Shame On Charlie has won two of 11 starts and has banked $104,520.
Antonios Mark is a son of the Bernardini stallion Marking campaigned by Andy A. Banegas. A chestnut gelding, Antonios Mark has won three of four races -- including last year’s 1-mile & 70-yard, $125,000 Hobbs Fall Classic Stakes (R) at Zia Park -- and the $10,000 third-place share of the Corralito Steak House Stakes purse pushed his earnings to $112,000.
