Multiple Grade 1-winning millionaire To Honor and Serve has been retired from racing and will take up residency at Gainesway Farm in Lexington, where he will stand his first season at stud in 2013.

The 4-year-old son of Bernardini retires both sound and highly accomplished. He was a leading 2-year-old in 2010, capturing the Grade 2  Remsen S. and Grade 2 Nashua S. at Aquedeuct after impressively breaking his maiden. Third in last year's Grade 2 Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth S. and Grade 1 Florida Derby, To Honor and Serve won the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby and ended his sophomore campaign with a victory in the Grade 1 Cigar Mile H. The handsome bay opened 2012 with a win in the Grade 3 Westchester S. before running third in the Grade 1 Metropolitan H., and he scored his biggest victory of the year in the Grade 1 Woodward S. at Saratoga in September, defeating a top field of older horses including Mucho Macho Man.

To Honor and Serve retires with 8 wins and earnings of $1,798,840. A $575,000 Keeneland September yearling, he is out of the stakes-winning Deputy Minister mare Pilfer, who recently sold for $1.95 million at F-T November and is a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner India and stakes winner Sing Softly. It is also the direct family of breed-shaping sire Dynaformer. A stud fee for To Honor and Serve will be announced soon.
