Joseph P. Morey Jr. Revocable Trust’s Hush of a Storm, a winner of three consecutive races, could make his next start Saturday in the 97th running of Keeneland’s $800,000 Toyota Blue Grass (G2). The race is worth 170 qualifying points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby (G1).
“We hope to run in the Blue Grass,” trainer Bill Morey said Sunday morning at Keeneland. “When we scratched (out of yesterday’s Jeff Ruby Steaks-G3 at Turfway Park), we brought him here yesterday afternoon.”
Hush of a Storm was the 4-1 second choice on the morning line for the Jeff Ruby off a victory in the Feb. 26 John Battaglia Memorial. In that race, he defeated eventual Ruby winner Like the King.
Morey said Hush of a Storm is scheduled to work Monday morning. Santiago Gonzalez, who has been aboard for all three of Hush of a Storm’s victories, would have the mount in the Toyota Blue Grass.
