Love Me Only, the mare at the center of a lawsuit and trial last October, is now a stakes producer. The foal she was carrying during the 2011 auction that led to the lawsuit, a son of Sea The Stars named Storm The Stars, won a listed race at Goodwood Racecourse in England Friday.
A daughter of leading European sire Sadler's Wells, Love Me Only is out of graded stakes winner Mariah's Storm, making her a half-sister to top stallion Giant's Causeway.
Purchased by Summer Wind Farm for $2.1 million at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale in 2011, Love Me Only came into the news in late 2014 after Frank and Jane Lyons, owners of Summer Wind, filed a lawsuit against bloodstock agent Reiley McDonald alleging McDonald misled them about the physical condition and breeding history of the mare. After several days of deliberation, the trial ended with the judges unable to come to a decision.
Summer Wind are listed as breeders of Storm The Stars, who is trained by William Haggis. The 3-year-old colt, now owned by Sheikh Juma Dalmook Al Maktoum, is a two-time winner in six starts.
