Happy Retirement, Silver Wizard!
« on: August 06, 2018, 12:58:18 pm »
Silver Wizard has been retired from breeding this morning. We bought him from The Grey Stable auction early last year for only $5k, which was a huge bargain. I was really excited to have a stallion join the farm, and Silver Wizard was a great addition. He retires with 210 foals on the ground, and with 26 foals due for 2023! We're looking forward to his last crop. Recently, Shelbie did a great Stallion Spotlight on him, his accomplishments on the track and how his progeny are doing, so I won't go into details here.

Currently, his 2yo crop has 5 winners out of 18 racing, and we have one entered in a stakes coming up this week.

Join me in wishing him a happy retirement with lots of carrots and just enjoying being a horse.

I hope he has a long and happy retirement! He's always been a sentimental favourite of mine.

I'm so sad to see him retire! And so young at 13. We own 7 foals by him including Ch. Silver Cat, an ungraded winner and G2-placed chaser who will likely join our broodmare band for next year, a 2yo winner in High South who ran 5th in a G1 last out, and several other 2yo's who are just now getting to the track for training. However, we do have FOUR mares in foal to him for next year so at least we have that to look forward to!
