The brilliance of STORM CAT with a
two-turn frame

“Promises Fulfilled ranks right up there with the best horses I’ve trained. He’s a lot like his sire in the mental toughness department and he is an extremely intelligent horse. He won major races on all the main stages—Gulfstream, Keeneland, Saratoga, and Belmont.” - Dale Romans, trainer

"It was Promises Fulfilled’s speed that put him in position to win the Phoenix, but it was his heart that won it."
- Byron King, DRF

- trainer Dale Romans

 

"He's a really nice horse. When he broke from the gate, he did everything perfectly. He always fires. When he came to the straight, he didn't let the other horse pass. He always wants to win.”
- jockey Luis Saez, Paulick Report

 

"Promises Fulfilled is an example of the exceptionally successful cross of Forestry and sons over Marquetry mares."

- Alan Porter, BloodHorse
