Stakes Winner Little Treasure Retired

Little Treasure, a graded stakes-winning 5-year-old mare, has been retired from racing with six wins from 16 starts and earnings of $305,262. She will be bred to either Grand Slam or Hennessy, both of whom stand at Ashford Stud near Versailles, Ky.

A French-bred daughter of Night Shift out of the Sillery mare Luminosity, Little Treasure won the San Clemente Handicap (gr. IIT) and Pucker Up Stakes (gr. IIIT) in 2002. She was twice graded stakes-placed on grass last year.

Little Treasure returned from ankle surgery in 2003 to finish unplaced in the Las Cienegas Handicap (gr. IIIT) at Santa Anita on April 4 in her final start.

Bred by M.3 Elevage and a stakes winner in France, Little Treasure is owned by Sidney Port, Marsha Naify, and Emmanuel de Seroux' San Gabriel Investments.
