STAY INSIDE COULD HAVE RUN LAST RACE

They say there’s a curse on Golden Slipper winners that when they win they never win a race again. It looks as though the same fait could be waiting for Stay Inside who looks set to move to the breeding barn in 2022

Stay Inside set for lucrative Stallion career

Henry Field, a leading figure at Newgate Racing has indicated that connections will make a call on the racing future of Stay Inside next month with interested parties leaning towards ending the talented three year olds season early.

After winning the Golden Slipper Stay Inside has assured a lucrative future as a commercial stallion however each loss he no incurs will see a drop in potential sales value.

Trained by the Freedmans, Michael and Richard, Stay Inside had a huge two year old season but since winning the Golden Slipper has finished midfield in the San Domenico Stakes and unplaced in the Run To The Rose at the start of the Spring. 

It seems those two defeats and an unwillingness to sacrifice stock price further will see Stay Inside head to the Newgate breeding roster and join an all star cast including his sire, Extreme Choice in 2022.

If Stay Inside is retired without having another start, he will be the 16th Golden Slipper winner in the last 30 years who failed to win another race after their juvenile season, joining Merlene (1996), Prowl (1998), Catbird (1999), Calaway Gal (2002), Polar Success (2003), Stratum (2005), Sebring (2008), Crystal Lily (2010), Overreach (2013), Mossfun (2014), Vancouver (2015), Capitalist (2016), Estijaab (2018), Kiamichi (2019) and Farnan (2020).

There are a number of reasons used to explain the damning statistics against Golden Slipper winners.

For a well-bred Golden Slipper-winning colt, the simple fact is they are almost too valuable as a stallion prospect to keep racing.

Others argue that an exacting two-year-old campaign is detrimental to a long-term racetrack career.
