Unbridled Express, a grade I stakes-placed son of Unbridled's Song, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Breakway Farm near Dillsboro, Ind. Owned by a partnership, he will stand for $2,000.
Unbridled Express broke his maiden at Churchill Downs at 2 second time out with a four-length triumph over subsequent champion Street Sense. In his next start, he finished third to Circular Quay and Scat Daddy in the Hopeful Stakes (gr. I) at Saratoga.
Six-year-old Unbridled Express, who won or placed in four of five starts, raced for a partnership that included trainer and co-breeder Bernard Flint. Unbridled Express is one of two stakes horses out of the Sky Classic mare Skye Castles. Second dam, stakes winner My Sea Castles, is a half-sister to Japanese champion Hishi Akebono and English and French group I winner Agnes World.
