Stakes Winner Vorticity Retired From Racing; Stud Plans Pending

Matthew Schera’s stakes winner and multiple graded stakes-placed Vorticity has been retired from racing.

Schera purchased the speedy son of Distorted Humor at the 2015 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-Year-Olds in Training sale for $220,000. Vorticity was a stakes winner by year’s end, using a wire-to-wire maiden special score at Aqueduct going seven furlongs as a launching pad to victory in the $100,000 Marylander Stakes at Laurel Park.

Vorticity then embarked on the 2016 Kentucky Derby trail with strong placings in both the Grade 3 Jerome Stakes and G3 Withers Stakes. He earned black type on two more occasions including a sharp third to Catalina Cruiser and Battle of Midway in the G2 Pat O’Brien Stakes at Del Mar. Vorticity retires with $347,040 in the bank.

“I look at a lot of stride data, and Vorticity had a very large stride and he had a very efficient way of going,” said Schera.

Out of the fast multiple graded stakes-winning Flatter mare Tar Heel Mom, Vorticity is bred on the highly successful Distorted Humor/A. P. Indy cross.

A stud deal is pending for Vorticity. He is cataloged as stallion prospect in the upcoming Keeneland November auction with South Point Sales.
