Multiple Grade 2 winner Good Samaritan officially retired, available for inspection
Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Good Samaritan, a versatile millionaire son of Harlan’s Holiday and a Grade 2 winner at two, three, and four, has been retired and will stand the 2019 breeding season at WinStar Farm. He is currently available for inspection and will stand for $12,500 S&N.

“He is the last great son of Harlan’s Holiday, one of the most dominant American sire lines we have currently, and he was ultra-consistent,” said Sean Tugel, WinStar Farm's Director of Bloodstock Services and Assistant Racing Manager. “In this day and age of retiring horses with limited starts, he started 15 times over three years, including 14 straight Graded Stakes contests. As a juvenile, he was unlucky not to win the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) as the favorite and was only a half-length away from winning the Clark Handicap (G1) against older horses as a sophomore. He offers commercial breeders excellent value as a consistent and sound stallion prospect.”

A 4 ¾-length winner of the $600,000 Jim Dandy Stakes (G2) in his first start on the dirt, Good Samaritan won the Summer Stakes (G2) at two on the turf and captured the $400,000 New Orleans Handicap (G2) in his 4-year-old debut this year. All told, he won or placed in eight Graded stakes during his racing career, making 14 consecutive Graded stakes starts from 15 lifetime outings, earning $1,309,450. He defeated a total of 10 Grade 1 winners—six on dirt and four on turf—and was just shy of being a Grade 1 winner, finishing second by a half-length in the 2017 Clark Handicap (G1) at Churchill Downs.

A homebred for WinStar Farm, Good Samaritan is out of the stakes-placed Pulpit mare Pull Dancer. This deep family, which traces back to blue hen mare La Troienne, includes stallions Sky Mesa and Bernstein, as well as Champion 2-Year-Old Filly Outstandingly.
