Frank Stronach announced the retirement of homebred millionaire Red Bullet to his Adena Springs Kentucky near Midway. The 5-year-old Unbridled horse finished unplaced in the Nov. 30 Cigar Mile Handicap (gr. I) at Aqueduct in his last start and retires with six wins from 14 starts and $1,161.920 in earnings. There was speculation that Red Bullet might close out his career in the Dec. 28 Fred W. Hooper Handicap (gr. III) at Calder Race Course, but it was decided to end his career now.

Red Bullet, bred in the name of Adena Springs and produced from the Caro mare Cargo, beat Fusaichi Pegasus in the 2000 Preakness Stakes (gr. I) and earlier won the Gotham Stakes (gr. III). His 2003 fee is $30,000.
