By: SPORTS NETWORK
Del Mar, CA (Sports Network) - In Lingerie, winner of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, has been retired from racing and will be bred to European Horse Of The Year, Frankel.
The 3-year-old filly is owned by Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners and Gary Barber, and was trained by Todd Pletcher.
"It was a true privilege to be able to campaign In Lingerie this past season," Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners President Aron Wellman and Gary Barber jointly offered in a statement. "She is a magnificent filly and took us to the top of the mountain from coast to coast, providing many glorious thrills along the way.
"We want to extend our gratitude to Mr. Santulli and his Colt's Neck Stables for breeding such a talented specimen; to the Lyster family for the horsemanship they displayed in developing In Lingerie in the earliest stages of her career; to John Velazquez for guiding her to 3 Graded victories with power and grace; and to Todd Pletcher and his staff who performed an absolutely dazzling job of training this filly and maximizing her potential through an illustrious season."
A daughter of 2003 Belmont Stakes winner Empire Maker, In Lingerie won the Spinster Stakes and Bourbonette Oaks along with the Black-Eyed Susan. She was second in the Alabama and third in the Coaching Club American Oaks. In her final start, In Lingerie was ninth in the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf.
The filly closes her racing career with four wins in eight starts for $712,265.
