US Champ Declan's Moon Retired

Wednesday, 2nd July 2008

Owners Mace & Samantha Siegel have retired 2004 US champion 2YO male Declan's Moon (by Malibu Moon) reported thoroughbredtimes.com. The now 6YO gelding strung together victories in the Gr2 Del Mar Futurity, Gr3 Hollywood Prevue Stakes & Gr1 Hollywood Futurity in winning all 4 of his starts as a 2YO. He began his 3YO campaign with victory in the Gr2 Santa Catalina Stakes, but just days later "a non-displaced chip was discovered in his left knee, which knocked him out of the Gr1 Kentucky Derby" & subsequent "cannon bone issues kept him from returning to the races until July 2006 & he won only 1 of his final 13 starts". Overall Maryland-bred Declan's Moon won 6 of 18 starts & earned US$705,647.
