Grade 1-Placed Caracaro Retired To Crestwood Farm For 2021

Caracaro, a Grade 1-placed 3-year old by top-class sire Uncle Mo, out of a daughter of War Front, will enter stud at Pope McLean’s Crestwood Farm in 2021.

He will stand his first year at stud for $6,500 LFSN.

Caracaro was bred by SF Bloodstock, LLC, and raised and raced by Global Thoroughbred, LLC.

“Caracaro from day one was very talented and performed brilliantly at the highest level,” said trainer Gustavo Delgado. “I consider Caracaro to be a horse in another category, and the best horse I have ever trained.”

“We are excited to stand Caracaro, a quality Grade 1 performing son of Uncle Mo, who is proving himself to be a sire of sires” said Pope McLean Sr. “Three of the top four freshman sires by earnings, are sons of Uncle Mo. Caracaro was dominant breaking his maiden at Gulfstream Park and was labeled a TDN Rising Star. He followed that up with a pair of runner-up finishes at Saratoga in the Grade 3 Peter Pan and $1-million G1 Travers Stakes. Caracaro has a lot to offer breeders as a Grade 1 performer by Uncle Mo, out of a War Front mare.”

Caracaro was a TDN Rising Star winning a one-mile maiden special weight in 1:35, the best time at a mile for a 3-year-old during the championship meeting at Gulfstream Park in 2020. After a six-month respite, Caracaro finished a determined second by a neck, battling Country Grammer to the wire in the G3 Peter Pan at Saratoga, followed by runner-up finish in the G1 Travers behind four-time Grade 1 Winner Tiz The Law.

Caracaro competed at an elite level, with improving speed figures in each race, and a top Beyer Speed Figure of 101 in the Travers.

Caracaro defeated graded stakes-quality runners including Jesus’ Team who ran a terrific second in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile; Mystic Guide, winner of the G2 Jim Dandy and second in the G1 Jockey Club Gold Cup; Grade 2 winner Modernist; and Grade 3 winners Max Player, Country Grammer; and Uncle Chuck, among others.
