Proud Tower Too captured the Malibu (gr. I) in 2005.

Proud Tower Too, a grade I sprint winner at Santa Anita, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Tom and Debi Stull's Tommy Town Thoroughbreds near Santa Ynez, Calif. His fee is $5,000.

One of California's top speedsters, Proud Tower Too scored major wins in the 2005 Malibu Stakes (gr. I) at Santa Anita and the 2006 Gulf News Dubai Golden Shaheen (UAE-I) in Dubai. His triumph in the seven-furlong Malibu in 1:21.62 came over Attila's Storm and subsequent champion sprinter Thor's Echo. In the six furlong Golden Shaheen, he defeated Thor's Echo.

Proud Tower Too also won the On Trust Handicap right before the Malibu. In 2007, he placed in all three starts, all stakes, including the San Carlos Handicap (gr. II), in which he was beaten a neck. A homebred for Daniel Cardenas' Tricar Stables, he retired with seven wins and seven placings from 22 starts and earnings of $1,735,572. He was trained by Sal Gonzalez.

A 6-year-old son of Proud Irish, Proud Tower Too is one of two stakes winners from the winning Irish Tower mare Dora's Tower. Fourth dam is co-champion Process Shot.
