“Curlin has proven himself across two continents with 16 starts, the honor of 2007 Horse of the Year, and the greatest North American money-earner in racing history. He always gave it his all and has done everything we have asked of him. I am proud to announce that he will start a new career in 2009 and contribute his soundness, stamina, durability, and athleticism to the breed. I am looking forward to seeing his foals compete and possibly exceed his unequaled racing record.”
-Jess Jackson on plans for Curlin to stand at stud in 2009. Jackson said Curlin could possibly have one more start before retiring if the right opportunity presents itself.
