LA-Bred Champ Star Guitar Retired

The king of the Cajuns, Star Guitar, has been retired after a sensational career in which he captured 24 of his 30 starts and three consecutive Louisiana-bred Horse of the Year titles.

The 7-year-old son of Quiet American–Minit Towinit, by Malagra, was forced to retire due to a recurring quarter crack after winning 22 stakes, all in Louisiana, for trainer Al Stall Jr. In his two ventures outside his home state he finished third in the Alysheba Stakes (gr. III) at Churchill Downs and fourth in the Texas Mile (gr. III) at Lone Star Park. He also finished fourth behind Battle Plan, General Quarters, and Awesome Gem in the 2010 New Orleans Handicap (gr. II).

But in Louisiana, he was virtually unbeatable and was riding a 10-race winning streak prior to his retirement.

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.
