Grade I winner Trust N Luck, co-holder of the highest Beyer Speed Figure for a 2-year-old, has been retired and will enter stud at Tom Simon's Vinery near Lexington. The 3-year-old son of Montbrook will be partially syndicated and will stand for $8,500 live foal.
Trust N Luck captured this year's Fountain of Youth Stakes (gr. I) in his first start of the year, then finished second to Empire Maker in the Florida Derby (gr. I). At Saratoga this summer, he ran third in the Amsterdam Stakes (gr. II).
Trust N Luck's co-record 110 Beyer came in winning the What a Pleasure Stakes at 1 1/16 miles at Calder Race Course as a 2-year-old. That year, he also captured the Florida Stallion In Reality Stakes and placed in two other stakes. Bred by Wiest's-Heather's 2000, he was retired with five wins from a dozen starts and earnings of $727,484 for owner Einar Paul Robsham and trainer Ralph Ziadie. His dam, multiple stakes-producer Bold Burst, is by Dahar.
