Storm Flag Flying
TrainerC. McGaughey III
OwnerOgden Mills Phipps
Unbeatable at 2, the daughter of Storm Cat won all four of her races in her debut season, three of them stakes, each one a Grade 1 – the Matron and Frizette at Belmont Park, and the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies at Arlington Park – to earn the juvenile filly championship for owner Ogden Phipps and trainer Claude “Shug” McGaughey. Winless in two starts at 3, Storm Flag Flying came back as a 4-year-old in 2004 to hit the board in all eight of her races, three of them wins, including two stakes: the Grade 2 Shuvee at Belmont and the Grade 1 Personal Ensign at Saratoga Race Course. In the Personal Ensign, Storm Flag Flying avenged a loss earlier at the summer meet to 2002 Horse of the Year Azeri, coming from behind the catch the favored champion mare in deep stretch and pull clear to a 1 ¼-length victory.
