Never Retreat not retired yet

Never Retreat’s racing career is not over yet.

Never Retreat was scheduled to be retired following her 2011 finale in Hollywood Park’s Grade 1 Matriarch. But after finishing a disappointing third as the 4-5 favorite three weeks ago at Hollywood Park, trainer Chris Block decided to give his Grade 1 winner one last chance to show her stuff before heading off to the breeding shed this spring.


Never Retreat will now end her career at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 7 in the same race she opened her amazing 2011 campaign, the Grade 3 Marshua’s River. Never Retreat finished third in the Marshua’s River before ultimately going on to win five graded stakes during the course of the season, highlighted by her 1 1/2-length triumph in Keeneland’s Grade 1 First Lady on Oct. 8. She also captured three Grade 2 races as well as Gulfstream’s Grade 3 Honey Fox. Never Retreat banked $902,000 of her nearly $1.3 million in career earnings this year.
