Retirement Watch: The Tin Man

The Tin Man schooling the kiddies in the G1 Shoemaker at Hollywood Park (Charles Pravata)

In addition to the spate of known and suspected retirements, 9 yo The Tin Man, son of Affirmed, was retired today because of a post-surgical injury.

Here he is scoring his last career win off of an 8 month layoff (!!) in the G1 Shoemaker Stakes at Hollywood Park on May 7th. He’s only the 3rd 9yo to win a G1 including John Henry (4 G1s in 1984) & John’s Call (2 G1s in 2000).

Get well old man!
