04 Jan 2022 14:02


 

Preakness Stakes (G1) winner Rombauer  has been retired from racing.Rombauer’s last race came in the June 5 Belmont Stakes Presented by NYRA Bets (G1) in which he finished third. The now 4-year-old Twirling Candy   colt had some filling in his ankles following the last race of the Triple Crown, according to the release. He returned to training with conditioner Michael McCarthy in mid-October and appeared to be in good order before returning to the work tab in late November. After five works, he began to carry pressure in his ankles again and on Dec. 31, the first day Santa Anita Park opened its main track after three days of rain, Rombauer took a bad step while galloping.At age 2, Rombauer rallied to finish second beaten less than a length in the American Pharoah Stakes (G1) on Santa Anita’s main track. In his 3-year-old debut, he added a victory on a synthetic track by taking the El Camino Real Derby at Golden Gate Fields. His biggest victory came last May in the Preakness at Pimlico Race Course. Off at 11-1 odds with Flavien Prat up, Rombauer came from mid-pack and drew off to win by 3 1/2 lengths in a final time of 1:53.62, the sixth fastest running of the Preakness at the distance of 1 3/16 miles.Rombauer retires with earnings of $1,040,500 and a 3-1-2 record in eight starts.
