Sorry to see him go. He got to 6 SW, etc as a 3YO but I just couldn't get him to get the last SW he needed to become Stud-Qualified. Finally decided to sell him in the hopes that he might have an uptake in form in new surroundings. Unfortunately, that didn't happen and, as he is now 8YO and probably well past his prime, I can understand why he would be retired.

We have another horse in a similar position, NCh. Gaudy Night, who is a year younger but also only needs one more SW. Unlike Bracton, Gaudy Night has shown a little recent form this year, including winning the G1 Grand National for the second time, so we are still hopeful for him.

Hopefully Gaudy Night makes it! Bracton has not earned a dime or even hit the board in years so I felt it was finally time to throw in the towel. I am still hopeful for Clowning Around though, who just needs a SW of any grade. At least he's 6 and has hit the board this year (albeit in an allowance). Hoping a very long rest until the Breeders' Series this winter will be enough.
