Flashy Southern Phantom Retired To WestWin Farms In Oklahoma

Southern Phantom, a Bodemeister colt whose flashy markings have made him a fan favorite at racetracks around the country, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at WestWin Farms in Purcell, Okla., for the 2021 breeding season.

Owner Danny Caldwell confirmed the 4-year-old’s retirement on Friday.

Southern Phantom went winless in 10 starts, racing first for breeder Southern Equine Stables and co-owner Calumet Farm. He finished third his second career start as a juvenile; a Saratoga maiden special weight. The colt then finished third again in his debut as a 3-year-old at Aqueduct.

That fall, Southern Phantom was entered in the 2019 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale, where he sold to Caldwell for $20,000. The colt was moved from New York to the Southwest, where he went unplaced in three starts this year at Oaklawn Park, Lone Star Park, and Remington Park.

Southern Phantom is out the unplaced Bernardini mare Out for Revenge, and he is a full-brother to stakes-placed Stronger.

His third dam is the blue hen mare Yarn, putting Southern Phantom in the same family as notable sires Tale of the Cat and Johannesburg. Other notable names on his page include English and Irish Group 1 winner Minardi, as well as Grade 1 winners Preach and Joking and Grade 2 winners Fed Biz and Stanford.

In addition to Thoroughbred stallions Code West, Euroears, Pass the Buck, and Mister Lucky Cat, WestWin Farms also stands the paint stallion Painted Turnpike, paint racing’s all-time leading money earner.
