Dual graded stakes winner Uh Oh Bango has been retired and will enter stud in 2014 at E.A. Ranches farm near Ramona, Calif.
A fee has yet to be announced for the 6-year-old son of Top Hit, who will join stallions Anziyan Royalty (by Anziyan), Chattahoochee War (War Chant), Game Plan (Danzig), and Rocky Bar (In Excess).
Trained by Kory Owens during four seasons on the track, Uh Oh Bango raced as a homebred for Triple AAA Ranch. He captured two graded stakes—last year's San Pasqual Stakes (gr. II) and the 2011 Berkeley Stakes (gr. III)—and hit the board in four other graded events.
In 2012 Uh Oh Bango was second to Game On Dude in the San Antonio Stakes (gr. II) before running third behind Ron the Greek in the Santa Anita Handicap (gr. I). As a 2-year-old, Uh Oh Bango placed in a pair of grade III stakes: the Iroquois at Churchill Downs and Boyd Gaming's Delta Jackpot at Delta Downs.
Uh Oh Bango was bred in Arizona out of the French Deputy mare French Debutante, who has produced six winners from six starters including stakes winners Ez Dreamer, French Hit, and Top Debutante. The latter two are full siblings to Uh Oh Bango.
Uh Oh Bango retires with a record of 5-6-3 from 20 starts and earnings of $691,512.
