Midwest Thoroughbreds posted the following information on its website Thursday afternoon:
“With a recent x-ray revealing a career ending condition, it is with great sadness that we must announce the retirement of Work All Week. This horse has brought much excitement to this stable, the racing fans of Illinois and to fans all around the country. Work is the first of what we hope will be many homebred success stories. As for all of us at Midwest, we have been truly blessed with his great successes and will cherish the memories of this great horse. We will all miss watching him cross the wire at the front of the pack and look forward to helping him find his new purpose.”
Work All Week leaves the track a multiple graded stakes winner whose laurels include the 2014 Breeders' Cup Sprint and back-to-back wins in the Grade 3 Phoenix for trainer Roger Brueggemann. The City Zip gelding was the winner of 13 races from 19 starts and retires with earnings of over $1.5 million. The son of Repriced mare Danzig Matilda is a homebred for Midwest.
