Summer Squall was sired by Storm Bird, a son of 1964 Northern Dancer, "one of the most influential sires in Thoroughbred history" His dam was Weekend Surprise, who was also the dam of 1992 United States Horse of the Year AP Indy Weekend Surprise's dam Lassie Dear was also the direct female-line ancestor of Duke of Marmalade, Lemon Drop Kid and Ruler of the World

Bred and born on the land that became Lane's End Farm in Versailles, Kentucky, by WS Farish III & WS Kilroy, Summer Squall was trained by Neil J Howard and ridden by National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame jockey Pat Day

Racing career

Racing at age two, Summer Squall went undefeated in all five of his starts As a three-year-old in 1990, he became known for his rivalry with Unbridled They met six times at ages three and four, with Summer Squall winning three of those races, including the Blue Grass Stakes, and finished ahead of Unbridled in one other, the 1991 Pimlico Special

At Kentucky Derby post time, Summer Squall was sent off as the bettors' second choice behind Mister Frisky, a colt from Puerto Rico who had won a record sixteen straight races coming into the Derby including victories in California in the San Rafael and San Vicente Stakes and the important Grade I Santa Anita Derby Running six lengths back, Summer Squall made a move as the field turned into the stretch for home but Unbridled came with him, then pulled away to win Pleasant Tap finished third with Mister Frisky eighth

Summer Squall won the Preakness Stakes by 2​1⁄2 lengths In beating Unbridled, his 18 seconds for the final 3/16 of a mile was the fastest in Preakness history Summer Squall had bled quite a bit during his racing in Florida and required Lasix to deal with the problem However, Lasix was still banned in New York in 1990, so he did not race in the Belmont Stakes, in which rival Unbridled finished fourth

Summer Squall competed at age four in 1991 He won the Fayette Handicap at Keeneland Race Course; then in Chicago at Arlington Park, he ran second to Black Tie Affair in the Washington Park Handicap He also finished second to Farma Way in the then-Grade I Pimlico Special


Summer Squall was a ridgling, meaning that he had an undescended testicle However, this did not preclude him being used at stud He stood at Lane's End Farm until he was pensioned in 2004 due to fertility problems He was euthanized in September 2009 from infirmities of old age

The sire of thirty-five stakes winners, Summer Squall produced offspring that included:

  • Charismatic - 1999 Kentucky Derby winner, 1999 American Horse of the Year
  • Storm Song - won 1996 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly
  • Summer Colony - millionaire filly, multiple stakes winner including the Grade I Personal Ensign Handicap
  • Summer Mis - 2003 Illinois Horse of the Year

Summer Squall is also the damsire of Stevie Wonderboy and of Summer Bird, winner of the 2009 Belmont Stakes
