I Spent It, winner of the 2014 Saratoga Special Stakes (gr. II), has been retired from racing and will stand in 2016 at J. Michael O'Farrell's Ocala Stud in Florida. A fee will be announced soon.
Fasig-Tipton has added five more supplemental entries to the catalog for its November sale, to be held Nov. 1 in Lexington.
Nine more 3-year-olds were made eligible to the Triple Crown during the late nomination period that closed March 23. The fee for each horse was $6,000.
Far Right will make his next start in the $300,000 Southwest Stakes (gr. III) Feb. 16 at Oaklawn Park, Ron Moquett confirmed the morning of Jan. 31. Mike Smith will again have the mount aboard the Smarty Jones Stakes winner.
Oaklawn Park reported Nov. 7 that it has received a record number of stall applications for the 2015 winter/spring race season.
WinStar Farm announced 2015 stud fees for most of its 22-stallion roster, which is headed again by leading sire Distorted Humor at $100,000 stands and nurses, and includes a new fee for leading freshman sire Super Saver.
Trainer Tony Dutrow isn't sure if I Spent It will start in the Nov. 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I). He's just focused on Saturday's $500,000 Champagne Stakes (gr. I) at Belmont Park.
Super Saver's first crop began attracting attention at the 2013 yearling sales. His foals have only improved since then and have now placed the 2010 Kentucky Derby winner at the top of the freshman sire list.

In his career debut at Belmont Park, I Spent It showed a good kick in the stretch to notch a three-quarter-length victory in a five-furlong maiden special weight race to become the first winner for freshman sire Super Saver.
