Grade I winner In Summation , who set four track or course records, has been retired from racing and will stand at J. Michael O’Farrell’s Ocala Stud Farm near Ocala, Fla. The 7-year-old son of Put It Back will stand for $4,000 stands and nurses.
After breaking his maiden at 2 in his first start, In Summation raced solely in stakes. In his 28 added-money appearances, he won or placed in 18 of them. He was a stakes winner in four of his five years of racing.
In consecutive starts at Santa Anita in 2008, In Summation set a still-standing track-record of 1:01.27 for 5 1/2 furlongs in the El Conejo Handicap (gr. III) and a track-record of 1:06.67 for six furlongs in the Palos Verdes Handicap (gr. II). That year, he placed in two grade I stakes and ran fourth in the Sentient Flight Group Breeders’ Cup Sprint (gr. I) behind champion Midnight Lute , Fatal Bullet, and Street Boss .
In 2007, In Summation set a track-record in the six-furlong Bing Crosby Handicap (gr. I) at Del Mar and a course-record for 5 1/2 furlongs in the Sneakbox Stakes at Monmouth Park.
A Florida-bred, In Summation won five races at 2 and was voted state champion juvenile male. In 2009, he captured the John McSorley Stakes on grass and another El Conejo.
In Summation retired with a dozen wins from 29 starts and earnings of $1,226,166. He made all but three of his starts for Waterford Stable.
“In Summation fits the bill of what we look for in a stallion,” O’Farrell said. “People in Florida know him well. He was an immensely talented and durable racehorse, and we have high hopes for his career as a stallion.”
Bred by Arthur I. Appleton, In Summation is out of the winning Dayjur mare Fiesta Baby and is a half-brother to stakes winner Dakota Duke. In Summation’s second dam is New York grade I winner Fiesta Gal.
