Retiring Colts to Stallions

 You can now retire colts to

be breeding stallions, provided that they are 4 years old, have raced at least 10 times, and

have at least one stakes win.

If you want to retire your 3yo colt, just wait until January

when he turns 4 and then retire him (again, provided he's raced 10+ times and has a stakes

win).

 That's because his status is

Retired, not Racehorse.  It will only work for a horse who is currently a racehorse.

 If I remember right, anyone

who's status is "Retired" is retired permanently unless Shanthi or I go in and change their

status (not something we're happy to do unless it's our fault).

Mares can retire to

broodmare status once they have turned four and had 10 starts.  All horses are automatically

set to Retired once they hit 15 (so next year any horse born in 1993 will be retired).

 We can fix it, it's just not

something we like having to do.  What's his ID # (from URL when you go to his page)?
