Resorts World Casino New York City Wood Memorial (gr. I) winner Gemologist has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Kenny Trout's WinStar Farm for the 2013 breeding season.
Gemologist, winner of the April 7 Resorts World Casino New York City Wood Memorial Stakes (gr. I), was a weanling when he made his first and only appearance in the auction ring.
Undefeated Gemologist got his 3-year-old campaign underway in sharp fashion at Gulfstream Park March 16, pulling away from grade I winner Currency Swap to win an allowance race by seven lengths.
His stout pedigree and an affinity for the Churchill Downs main track set up Tiznow's grade II Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes winner Gemologist for consideration in the 2012 Kentucky Derby.
