Schosberg Claims Multiple Stakes Winner Twisted Tom To Retire Gelding At Age Eight

Twisted Tom, an 8-year-old multiple stakes winner and frequenter of the New York racing circuit, was claimed for $10,000 over the weekend so he could be retired.

The Daily Racing Form reported that trainer Richard Schosberg dropped the claim after hearing from breeders Drs. William Wilmot and Joan Taylor expressing concern for the gelding.

Twisted Tom boarded a van bound for ReRun Thoroughbred Adoption the next day.

Schosberg is the president of Take The Lead, the New York Racing Association’s Thoroughbred retirement arm.

Twisted Tom leaves the track with $939,135 in earnings, picked up wins in the private Terms and Federico Tesio, as well as the New York Derby and Albany Stakes early in his career. More recently though, he had made appearances on the claiming circuit.

Schosberg told the Form’s David Grening that he thought the horse may make a good jumper someday.

“We want to make sure these horses retire before they have major issues,” Schosberg said.
