Majestic Heat has been retired following her fifth-place showing in the G1 Santa Margarita at @santaanitapark. She won 7 of 20 lifetime for $578,329 in earnings. She'll be bred in 2018 to Uncle Mo.

Dont blame them- but after seeing her stunning Tapit born the other day, I may have gone back to him.

Forever Unbridled will retire after Dubai World Cup
The champion mare Forever Unbridled will be retired and bred this spring to Medaglia d’Oro following her start March 31 in the Group 1, $10 million Dubai World Cup, owner Charles Fipke said Friday.

Forever Unbridled is a 6-year-old mare who capped her Eclipse Award-winning 5-year-old campaign with a victory in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff. She was briefly considered for a start in the Pegasus World Cup on Jan. 27, but Fipke and trainer Dallas Stewart instead decided to point to the World Cup, a race no filly or mare has won. Forever Unbridled shipped to Dubai earlier this week and has settled in well, Fipke said.

“She’s really loving it over there,” Fipke said.

Fipke said Forever Unbridled has been valued as an eight-figure horse were she to be offered at auction. He said he has no intention of selling the mare, but said the economics suggest retirement is the right move since Forever Unbridled already has won multiple Grade 1 races, a Breeders’ Cup race, and an Eclipse.

“You go and run a Grade 1 horse in a race worth $1 or $2 million, you’re risking your investment. For $10 million it’s worth the risk,” Fipke said.

Make it a good one, and show the boys what you're made of, Forever Unbridled!
Also... Medaglia d'Oro is a droolworthy cross.

I don't know what Fipke will name the resulting foal. He has sent Lemons Forever and Unbridled Forever to MDO the past few years.

. Will you please explain the Rags to Riches 2.0 reference? I am trying to learn more about the industry. Thank you!

I'm really disappointed. I was pretty damn excited about an American Pharoah x Stellar Wind mating. Why not just breed her to him first and then try Ireland later? Did Rags to Riches ever go to someone besides Galileo?

@Ziggypop
When Rags to Riches retired as a broodmare, they sent her to Giant's Causeway once though the filly she produced was never raced. Then they bred her once to Henrythenavigator (before they carted him off to Siberia), that foal raced once didn't hit the board and then ???. Afterwards they sent her to Ireland and bred her to Galileo. Over and over again. Unsurprisingly this cross has not produced some genuinely successful offspring on the turf, except for Rhett Butler who found success running in... Hungary and Serbia (he is a multiple stakes winner there). She has one other son running, Rich and Righteous in Dubai who has one win from 18 starts on the dirt.

People everywhere lament and puzzle the decision of Coolmore to send such a successful dirt mare with a deep dirt pedigree over and over again to Galileo, king of the world yes, but who hasn't produced any noteworthy dirt horses (and I wonder how many other winners on the dirt besides Rich and Righteous he has produced at all), when it would seem logical to try her with some top Dirt or Dual Surface stallions a few times before trying again with top Turf stallions.

Treve,
Was Rags to Riches bred to him again this year or did they finally send her to a different stallion?

I had completely forgotten but Rags to Riches went to Tapit in 2017 for a 2018 foal! Hopefully that will be a good one :lol: Not sure when her due date is, and I am not sure if she had a foal last year. I'm trying to find that info!
Her Giant's Causeway daughter, Opulence had an American Pharoah foal last year.

Edit: Rags had an Uncle Mo last year... so it seems Coolmore finally came to their senses with regards to her ;)

Makes me wonder how Royal Delta's filly by Galileo is doing. She's a yearling now.

Hope she is doing well :(
By the way, Rags to Riches' blue dam, Better Than Honour went to Curlin last year. She's 22 this year, I wonder if this will be her last foal.
