September Storm joins Knockhouse Stud for 2017
14-year-old formerly stood at Ballyash Stud
September Storm is joining the roster of National Hunt stallions at Knockhouse Stud in County Kilkenny for 2017.
The 14-year-old son of Monsun - who supplied his third Melbourne Cup winner with Almandin on Tuesday - formerly stood at Ballyash Stud in County Down.
The best runners from small crops by September Storm are Alan King's promising hurdler Mia's Storm and fair point-to-pointer Wind Of Hope.
The sire was a Listed winner in his native Germany and another claim to fame is he is a brother to in-demand dual-purpose stallion Shirocco, sire of brilliant jumps mare Annie Power, Minella Rocco and Rock The Kasbah.
Knockhouse Stud's Sean Kinsella said: "September Storm is beautiful looking and very correct.
"He hasn't had a large amount of runners but there are more in the pipeline and there's a bit of a buzz about him - I had people booking in mares before I had even completed the deal for him."
