“We considered bringing him back for a final start in the Pegasus World Cup Invitational S. (G1) because he ran so well in the Breeders’ Cup,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar’s president, CEO, and racing manager. “He shed his frog in that race and the timing of getting him back into training is not going to work, unfortunately. He has been very popular when people see him, and we are excited about standing him next year.”
The 4-year-old son of Curlin emulated his sire by capturing the Woodward H. (G1) in his start prior to the Breeders’ Cup Classic, earning a 104 Beyer in the front-running score for trainer Stanley Hough. The Woodward marked his second straight Graded win following a victory in the Monmouth Cup S. (G3) over the summer. Last year at three, he won the Peter Pan S. (G3), defeating next-out Belmont S. (G1) winner Sir Winston. All told, Global Campaign retires with a record of 10-6-0-2, having amassed earnings of $1,321,080.
A winner from seven furlongs to 1 ¼ miles, Global Campaign is out of the A.P. Indy mare Globe Trot, making him a half-brother to multiple Grade 1 winner Bolt d’Oro and multiple stakes winner Sonic Mule.
