Travers Winner Afleet Express Retired

Afleet Express, tenacious winner of the $1 million Travers Stakes (gr. I) at Saratoga against a stellar field, has been retired from racing and will stand the 2011 season at the Beck family’s Gainesway Farm near Lexington. A fee will be announced later.

Also winner of the Pegasus Stakes (gr. III) and third in the Jim Dandy Stakes (gr. II), 3-year-old Afleet Express is the leading money earner by Gainesway stallion Afleet Alex.


“Afleet Express exemplifies the very best qualities in the Thoroughbred race horse, and of the Afleet Alex progeny in particular,” said Gainesway president and CEO Antony Beck. “The Travers victory, at the American classic distance of 1 1/4 miles, when Afleet Alex just would not be denied, showed his class and courage under fire. But he also won his 2-year-old debut in New York going away at six furlongs. And equally important, around the barn he has a tremendously calm temperament and demeanor, which is representative of his sire’s progeny. We are very excited to be standing this outstanding stud prospect."
