Awesome Gem Retired at Age 9

Grade I winner and multi-millionaire Awesome Gem has been retired from racing, according to West Point Thoroughbreds.

The 9-year-old son of Awesome Again was scheduled to run in the Sept. 23 Ralph M. Hinds Pomona Handicap at Fairplex Park. However, according to a statement by West Point, trainer Craig Dollase informed the owners that Awesome Gem had developed filling in a front leg.

"The decision to retire was easy," said West Point president Terry Finley. "Gem is telling us something."

Fun horse to watch, he deserves to retirement.
I admire his durability of 52 races across the country and in the money 63% of the time.
What a career ! 4 Breeders' Cup appearances, competitive in graded stakes from 12/06-8/12. I loved his 2011 Longacres Mile win. Then he came back this year and ran just as fast, if not faster, when finishing third at age 9. Happy Retirement for this race horse.
We love you, Gem. Thanks for everything.
