Alto Racing LLC (Alto Racing) today announced that its three year old colt, Materiality, will retire with a record of three wins in five starts, winning the Grade 1 Florida Derby in his third start.
“Materiality was a very special racehorse, winning from 6 furlongs to 1 1/8 miles against the best of his generation,“ said Alto Racing's bloodstock advisor Steven W. Young. “He is a good-looking individual and we expect the breeders will like him as much as we do. His Florida Derby remains the highest Beyer figure for a 3-year old this year.”
“Materiality was a strong, robust horse with a great disposition,” said Materiality Trainer Todd Pletcher. “He had sprinter speed with the ability to carry that speed to 1 1/8m.”
Stallion arrangements have not yet been finalized.
The Alto Racing team made the decision to retire Materiality due to a soft tissue injury he sustained while training.
