Preakness Stakes winner Exaggerator (Curlin-Dawn Raid, by Vindication) has been retired to stand at WinStar Farm, reports Blood Horse. The son of Curlin is the only 3YO colt to register three Gr1 victories in his classic season, namely the Preakness, Santa Anita Derby, and Haskell Invitational Stakes. He retires with 6 wins from 15 starts for over US$3.5 million in earnings. "We could not be more excited to add another classic winner the caliber of Exaggerator to the WinStar stallion roster," said Elliott Walden, WinStar president & CEO. "He is a sound horse that passes all physical exams, but as the only 3-year-old to test all the Triple Crown races and summer classics, he's a horse that is asking us for a rest. The fact he remains sound after 15 big-time starts in the last 16 months is a testament to his ability, consistency, fortitude, and class. He is an extreme racehorse - a tough, durable throwback to the old days, like Curlin." No stud fee has been announced.
