A daughter of multiple Grade I winner Get Stormy, Got Stormy represents the family of Tiy, whose family hasn't quite gotten the acclaim of the branch of the Bold Irish tribe descended through Shenanigans but has gone about the business of producing good horses for some 40 years nonetheless.
Tiy herself, a granddaughter of Bold Irish through Shenanigans' stakes-placed half sister Leix, was not a stakes winner but was out of the money only once from six starts. Most of her mates were second-tier stallions, but she did well in the paddocks with three stakes winners to her credit. The best of the trio was Pok Ta Pok, a son of the good speed sire Full Pocket who captured the 1989 Bold Ruler Stakes (USA-II). Tiy's stakes-winning daughter Loa (by Hawaii) is the dam of multiple Grade III winner Eagleton (by Majestic Light), and three winning daughters of Tiy also got into the act as graded stakes producers. Golden Tiy (by Dixieland Band) produced 1999 Prioress Stakes (USA-II) winner Sapphire n' Silk (by Pleasant Tap) and 2010 Affirmed Handicap (USA-III) winner Golden Itiz (by Tiznow), and Popul Vuh (by Czaravich) produced 1993 Nashua Stakes (USA-III) winner Popol's Gold (by Strike Gold).
Ahpo Hel (Mr, Leader x Tiy) contributed to the family record with four stakes winners, headed by 1994 Prioress Stakes (USA-II) winner Penny's Reshoot (by Turkey Shoot). Unfortunately, Penny's Reshoot died without issue, but other daughters have carried on. General Jeanne (by Honour and Glory) is the dam of Grade II winners Chace City (by Carson City) and Justwhistledixie (by Dixie Union), and the last-named mare broke the Grade I barrier for the family by producing 2013 Breeders' Cup Juvenile (USA-I) winner New Year's Day (by Street Cry) as well as multiple Grade II winner Mohaymen (by Tapit) and recent Grade III winner Kingly (also by Tapit).
Twin Propeller, Ahpo Hel's stakes-winning daughter by Known Fact, managed to produce only three minor winners from five foals, but she provided the connection between Ahpo Hel and Got Stormy through her French Deputy daughter Air France. The dam of multiple Grade II winner Smooth Air (by Smooth Jazz) and 2011 Sanford Stakes (USA-II) winner Overdriven (by Tale of the Cat), Air France produced the winning Malabar Gold mare Super Phoebe, dam of Got Stormy, as her first foal. Also the dam of stakes-placed Sky Gold (by Successful Appeal), Super Phoebe's most recent foals are a 2018 colt by Super Saver and a 2019 colt by Mohaymen.
Tiy's branch of the Bold Irish female line has been notable primarily for sprinters and milers, and Got Stormy fits well into that profile. Prolific and versatile with regard to the sire lines it has worked with, it has also produced a good many horses that could be called overachievers considering their pedigrees. If it seldom produces the kind of horse that takes the racing world or the sale ring by storm, it has produced a steady rain of solid performers, and there are far worse credentials for a family to have than that.
