I hope he has a long and happy retirement - sorry you didn't get more breedings out of him before he had to retire.

Sorry to hear that. I claimed his daughter in January last year, from Final Furlong. Glamorous Fog needs just two points to a Champion title and is mult. stakes placed.

Sorry to hear this Shelbie, glad you managed to get a few mares to him at least. Hope he has a long and happy retirement.

General/Questions / Strike it Rich Retired
« Last post by Shelbie on 8 hours ago »
We were saddened to discover the retirement of Strike this morning, having just purchased him in the Mixed Auction a few months ago, but that's the risk you take with such an older horse (and probably why no one else bid, lol). We did manage to squeeze in 11 mares to him before the season ended, so looking forward to those foals. Unfortunately I will need to rethink breeding plans for a dozen or so mares.

Although we only had him for about 3 months, Strike It Rich was active in FF for 16 years, so it feels only right to give him a proper send-off. Bred by Stillwater Farms, he won $2.7 million on the track and won 16 stakes races. At stud, he is currently silver with bronze as damsire. He has produced 8 MSW's and 4 millionaires. Some of his best foals include NCh. Billionaire, GCh. Boundless Train, GCh. Rich Belle, and MG1W/this year's G1 Dubai World Cup winner Ch. Strike It Lucky. He also has a 2yo SW in Ch. Tee En Tee.

Decent day, but most pleased about the fact that Palermo is now stud-qualified. :-)

Congratulations! That's crazy he's only 2. I don't think any of my horses would survive his race schedule. One day I'd like a freak of my own, haha.

Solid day from our racing crew.
