Willy Beamin has been retired via NYTHA's Take the Lead program. I'm not exactly sure where he is or where he'll be going (probably more details will be posted soon), but sounds like he's in good hands.

I think he's actually been retired for awhile, but this makes it official and puts him in the pipeline for a second career.

Been wondering where he was. Dropped out of sight a year or so ago. Still marvel at that turn around time between the Albany Stakes and the Kings
Bishop at Saratoga. Old school!

Thanks for the info BlindLucky.

Glen Hill Farm's G2SW Wishing Gate came out of her last with an ankle injury and has been retired. She will be bred to War Front.

I was watching that race, and I noticed that her rider (Mike Smith?) did not urge her after they entered the stretch. She usually has a nice closing kick, but she wasn't making up any ground, so I think he may have felt something was off and just eased her.

Multiple G1 winner (and one of my favorites of all time), Veyron.

Wishing him and long and happy life. Thanks for the memories.

That's too bad...it seemed like he had immense ability, and he was a horse whose next race I was looking forward to.

so so happy to hear this. i was really worried when he was eased last out, and i'm thrilled they're taking care of him.

he is a graded stakes winner, and with turf influence being by kitten's joy and wins on dirt i'm hoping he'll be a nice regional stallion.
