Two-Time Champion Roy H Retired; Gelding Will Remain Part of Miller’s Barn As Stable Pony

Trainer Peter Miller announced the retirement of two-time Sprint Champion Roy H on Thursday. The 8-year-old gelding won back-to-back editions of the Breeders’ Cup Sprint in 2017 and 2018, and retires with $3,139,765 in earnings while winning 10 of 23 starts, including nine of his last 12 races.

“It is with some sadness but also great joy that we announce the retirement of Roy H from racing,” Miller said. “What can you say about a horse like this who has given us so many thrilling moments? He is the embodiment of class and we will definitely miss seeing him compete. Fortunately, we will not have to miss him for long as he will be retired as a barn pony and remain a very important part of our team. He is a ‘favorite son’ among our staff and the feeling seems to be mutual as Roy H loves to be around the other horses and loves to train.

“He gave Rockingham Ranch and me a tremendous ride. It was both an honor and a pleasure to train such a magnificent animal. He is sound and healthy and this seemed like the right time to make this change in his career. We’ve had him since he was a 2-year-old, so watching him grow and mature into a world champion has been a great gift.”
