The 8-year-old gelding Something Extra, a multiple graded stakes-winning millionaire, was retired from racing this weekend. His trainer, Gail Cox, reported on Twitter that the son of Indian Charlie had suffered some bone bruising, and that he would hopefully be returning next season as her stable pony.
Bred in Kentucky by Gulf Coast Farms, Something Extra was originally purchased for $85,000 at the Keeneland September yearling sale by Cox for herself and part-owner John Menery.
Racing mostly at Woodbine, Something Extra recorded his first stakes win in the G2 Connaught Cup in 2012, the repeated in that race in 2013. In 2014, he won the G2 Highlander Stakes, and in 2015 he captured Keeneland's G3 Shakertown. After a handful of graded stakes placings in 2016, the gelding retires with an overall record of 9-10-7 from 39 career starts, with earnings of $1,015,394.
