Resorts World Casino New York City Wood Memorial (gr. I) winner Gemologist has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Kenny Trout's WinStar Farm for the 2013 breeding season.
The 3-year-old son of Tiznow encountered a minor setback in his training last month and was sent to the Versailles, Ky.-based farm for rehabilitation. After it was determined he wouldn't make it back to any major races on the remainder of the 2012 racing calendar, the decision was made for him to retire.
"Gemologist is one of the most talented horses WinStar has ever had the privilege to be a part of," said Elliott Walden, president & CEO of WinStar, which campaigned the colt during his racing career. "He's a grand-looking individual and displayed the speed, class, and determination of Tiznow, who we believe is on his way to becoming a great sire of sires.
