The honest 8-year-old veteran Get Funky, whose 11-for-45 career was
highlighted by wins in the Grade 2 Del Mar Derby and Grade 3 Morvich
Handicap, has been retired from racing trainer John Sadler said Tuesday.
Sadler and owner Keith Abrahams claimed Get Funky for $62,500 from
his second start in April 2006 and raced him for six years as he
gradually went up the class ladder before gradually going back down. In
his most recent start Oct. 15, Get Funky finished ninth in a $25,000
claiming race on the hill.
“We’re going to miss the heck out of him,” Sadler said. “He’s like my
pal, I love that horse and [Abrahams] felt the same way. We’re going
to find a good home for him.”
