What the Nation is saying about Star Guitar...

Before we look ahead to a new racing season, let's take pause to say good-bye and good luck to those that are leaving the track and moving on to their second careersRead More
Star Guitar's first foal was a filly born January 13 at Clear Creek Stud in Folsom, LA. The proud mama is unraced Luna Beam (by Malibu Moon), a full sister to G1 Princess Rooney Handicap winner Malibu Mint.

  • forego139 · Thanks for the great memories you provided through the years winning all those race's, it's always a thrill to see a horse like S.G. race because he always wants to beat you and after 30 race's he still had that killer instinct to get there first. Good luck on your retirement and you leave on a 10 race win streak, unbelievable. · 698 days ago ·
