Feverish, a grade II winner as a homebred for Martin and Pam Wygod, has been retired from racing with $908,983 in earnings. She last raced in defense of her title in the Bayakoa Handicap (gr. II) in mid-December at Hollywood Park and finished fifth.
"She came out of the race sound, and we figured she had done enough," said Russell Drake, farm manager of the Wygods' River Edge Farm. "We retired her to give her time to rest and get her ready to be a momma."
Feverish, by River Edge foundation stallion Pirate's Bounty out of the Flying Paster mare Blonde Fever, won the 2000 Bayakoa over Gourmet Girl and Lazy Slusan. She won seven other stakes during her career, placed in 14 others, and was retired with a dozen wins from 42 starts. Plans call for her to be bred to River Edge stallion Bertrando.
