Owner Vince Scuderi announced today that his multiple graded stakes-winning homebred millionaire Dads Caps has been retired from racing.
Dads Caps is a six-year-old son of Discreet Cat, out of the multiple stakes producing Grindstone mare Seeking the Silver. Dads Caps' multiple graded stakes winning half-sister Paulassilverlining is a scheduled starter in Saturday's $500,000 Grade 1 Ballerina Stakes on the Travers day undercard.
Dads Caps won or placed in 14 stakes—all on the NYRA circuit, while accumulating $1,110,467 in lifetime earnings. Dads Caps won back-to-editions of the Grade 1 Carter Handicap in 2014 and 2015, and narrowly missed the hat trick with a close third-place finish this year.
“We've had a tremendous run with Dads Caps,” said owner-breeder Vince Scuderi. “For four seasons he took on the best sprinters of his generation and his record is a testament to his consistency and heart. We could campaign him another season, but we have had a few farms looking into his availability as a stallion and he has certainly earned that opportunity. I have not finalized any plans as of yet, but I am weighing all options for his future.”
