After another good weekend for his progeny, with several pay checks earned and Jumpin Jimineys winning his first race, Stormy Business now has Minnesota Bred earnings of $244, 336 and 10 winners since the beginning of the 2013 Minnesota racing season. These numbers may not seem large but in Minnesota, no other active standing Minnesota sire has over $200,000 in earnings or more than 7 winners!
As seen in the table, the active sires he competes with related to putting Minnesota Bred runners on the racetrack, don’t even stand for stud service or breed in Minnesota. Why you may ask? Simply put, Minnesota has the most liberal state bred definition in the country. Horses are actually bred in other states but simply foaled in Minnesota without any restriction whatsoever, yet called Minnesota bred horses based on the Minnesota State Breeders Fund definition of breeding.
