Big Surprise

Champion filly, Rags To Riches will be retired after re-injuring her right front pastern. She will be bred to Ashford Stud's Giants Causeway. Rags To Riches became the first filly in 112 years to win the Belmont Stakes.

“She has re-injured her right front pastern and because of the timing, the decision was made to retire her as opposed to trying to bring her back in the fall,” trainer Todd Pletcher said.

This seems like a disappointing end to a promising career.
