Proviso, who finished unplaced in Goldikova's record third TVG Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT) win at Churchill Downs Nov. 6, has been retired from racing to become a broodmare for Khalid Abdullah's Juddmonte Farms. The 5-year-old homebred mare, foaled in Great Britain, has arrived at Juddmonte near Lexington.
“She’s doing great, and has been turned out on the farm,” said farm manager Garrett O’Rourke. “She got a nice temperament.”
Proviso, who remains an Eclipse Award contender despite her recent
loss, went into the race with four consecutive grade I wins, all at
different racetracks. After beating males in the Frank E. Kilroe Mile
Handicap (gr. IT) at Santa Anita, she won the Just a Game Stakes (gr.
IT) at Belmont Park, captured the Diana Stakes (gr. IT) at Saratoga
over subsequent Emirates Airline Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf
(gr. IT) winner Shared Account, and took the Abu Dhabi First Lady
Stakes (gr. IT) at Keeneland.
