Andujar, a grade II winner for J. Paul Reddam and Mark Schlesinger, has been retired from racing to become a broodmare.
A daughter of Quiet American
, Andujar raced just three times for the two men after they privately acquired her last spring. She won the Milady Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. II) over Hollywood Story and Star Parade in her first start for them, then placed in the Vanity Invitational (gr. I) and Go for Wand (gr. I) Handicaps.
Andujar injured a tendon in the Go for Wand at Saratoga and was taken out of training. In her first workout following the mishap, she suffered an injury to the same tendon but in a different area and was retired.
Five-year-old Andujar, who is out of the Nureyev mare Nureyev's Best, was bred in Kentucky by Azienda Agricola S Uberto In Cerrecchia Srl and initially raced in France. She retired with three wins from 11 starts and earnings of $258,693. Reddam will not have her bred this spring and will sell her at auction in the fall.
