Retired Stardom Bound set for Big Brown date

FIVE-time Grade 1 winner Stardom Bound has been retired from racing and will be covered by Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown.

Both horses were privately purchased by IEAH Stables – Stardom Bound for $5.7m at the Fasig-Tipton November sale – and carried their new owners' colours to multiple Group 1 glory.

A daughter of Tapit and the Tarr Road mare My White Corvette, Stardom Bound was purchased for $375,000 by trainer Christopher Paasch at the OBS March two-year-olds in training sale.

She lived up to her name by reeling off consecutive victories for Paasch in the Debutante Stakes, Oak Leaf Stakes and Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.

Running for IEAH and in training with Bobby Frankel at three, she made it five Grade 1 wins on the trot in the Las Virgenes Stakes and Santa Anita Oaks.

Stardom Bound will now take up an engagement with Big Brown in the breeding shed at Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky – a mating that was first announced in February 2009.
