Grade 1 winner El Deal Retired
El Deal, winner of the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap (G1) at Saratoga Race Course this July, has been retired from racing, owners Al and Michelle Crawford announced Nov. 17.

Trained by Jorge Navarro, El Deal most recently finished second in the Sept. 30 Vosburgh Stakes (G1). The 5-year-old son of Munnings had been under consideration for a start in the TwinSpires Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1) at Del Mar but bypassed that outing after Navarro said in October the bay horse "isn't training the way that we think (he) should be to compete at this level."

"We had a great ride with El Deal," owner Michelle Crawford said in a release. "Taking on and beating the best sprinters of his generation in such dramatic style at Saratoga was a testament to his sheer brilliance and the thrill of a lifetime for us. We've have had a few farms looking into his availability as a stallion and he has certainly earned that opportunity."
