To Honor And Serve retired to Gainesway

GRADE 1 Cigar Mile and Woodward Stakes winner To Honor And Serve has been retired from racing and has joined the stallion roster at Gainesway Farm in Kentucky.

The son of Bernardini, who hails from his sire's first crop, has also won the Grade 2 Nashua Stakes, Grade 2 Remsen Stakes, Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby and Grade 3 Westchester Handicap for Charlotte Weber's Live Oak Plantation and trainer Bill Mott.

He signed off his career by finishing a well-beaten tenth of 12 in Saturday's Breeders' Cup Classic.

Gainesway's director of sales Michael Hernon said: "He's a beautiful horse and has all the attributes to be a top stallion--performance, physique, and pedigree.

"He's from the same female family as Dynaformer, going back to Darby Dan's great broodmare Golden Trail."

Bred by Twin Creeks Farm, Larry Byer and Rancho San Miguel, To Honor And Serve was purchased by Live Oak Plantation for $575,000 at the 2009 Keeneland September Sale.

He is out of stakes winner Pilfer, a Deputy Minister half-sister to Grade 2 scorer India. Further back, it is the family of top sire Dynaformer.
