US Gr1-Winner Price Tag Retired To Stud
Juddmonte Farms home-bred 2006 US Gr1 Matriarch Stakes-winning 4YO mare Price Tag (Dansili-Tarocchi, by Affirmed) "has been retired after suffering a series of niggling problems & has been sent to Kentucky to be bred next Spring," reported thoroughbredinternet.com. This season Price Tag finished runner-up in May's US Gr1 Gamely Breeders' Cup Stakes (9 furlongs on turf) at Hollywood Park & then 3rd in the Gr3 Cashcall Invitational Stakes at the same venue in July. Last year, as well as winning the Gr1 Matriarch Stakes (8 furlongs on turf) at Hollywood Park, she also won France's Gr3 Prix du Pin at Longchamp & finished 1st-across-the-line in the Gr1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches (French 1000 Guineas), but was disqualified to 3rd for interference; in addition she finished 3rd in France's Gr3 Prix De La Grotte (1600m) at Longchamp.
