We're happy to have multiple GSW Departing back home. After an impressive career of earning nearly $2M, he has officially been retired.

Texas Red retired, stud plans pending. A good horse with too many problems. His BC Juvenile was awesome, just wish we could have seen more of him.

Laoban retired with soft tissue injury following morning work. Hopefully the stallion deal will keep "all about taking chances" Guillot from unretiring him as soon as he looks to heal up well. Which, if I recall, was what happened with Moreno (Moreno the horse, that is).

Speaking of which, any word on Moreno (the horse)? Still around? Pasture-ornament?

Are any of Uncle Mo's 3yo graded winners going to be coming back at 4? I know that Laoban, Nyquist, Outwork all retired... is Mo Tom still around?

Classy, good-looking gal, and I think she'll produce some runners. Glad to hear she'll go to MDO. Loved her from the day she broke that record at 2.

Jaime Roth ‏@Fijithegreat
Today we officially retired our beautiful With Honors sound,happy & so deserving of the huge green paddocks & historic farm awaiting her.

DRF Free (and free of much info). She's one of the 2 year old fillies who checked and ran through the debris field in the Jimmy Durante Stakes finishing 3rd.

I have to wonder why they're retiring this nice filly if she's "sound." :?
Are the Roths less interested in racing, and more interested in the breeding side of the sport? Do they feel that there will be a better return on their investment by getting this black-type filly into the breeding shed sooner, rather than later?
And, as SparrowCastle hints, did that turf course debris debacle harm the filly in some way, even if she is officially 'sound?'
