Grade II winner Neko Bay has been retired from racing and will enter stud in 2011 at John Greely
IV’s Wintergreen Stallion Station near Midway, Ky. The 7-year-old son
of Giant's Causeway is currently being syndicated. His stud fee will be announced later.
A winner on dirt and synthetic surfaces, Neko Bay raced for his
breeders, Jerry and Ann Moss, and was trained by John Shirreffs. This
year, Neko Bay won the San Pasqual Handicap (gr. II) at Santa Anita and
then was a fast-closing second to Misremembered
in the Santa Anita Handicap (gr. I) in March in his final
start. Rallying from 14 lengths back, Neko Bay battled to within a
half-length of the winner at the finish and recorded a 102 Brisnet
speed figure. Overall, he finished first or second in 11 of 14 races
and earned $473,020.
