Just days before this year's Belmont Stakes, the reigning Belmont champion and winner of the Travers and Jockey Club Gold Cup was retired due to complications of a fracture suffered last fall before the Japan Cup Dirt.

“We've been in racing for 30 years and he gave us our greatest thrills, especially when he won the Belmont Stakes,” said owner K. K. Jayaraman. “He was just a pleasure to be around, and because of him we met a lot of wonderful people. It was a great year, and he took us to places we never would have gone.”
