•Frac Daddy Retired With Suspensory Strain, 7/29•
Multiple graded stakes winner Frac Daddy has been retired from racing, according to a July 28 announcement from trainer Ken McPeek.
The 5-year-old son of Scat Daddy suffered a mild strain of a suspensory branch, McPeek said in a release. Stallion plans have not yet been determined.
Racing for Magic City Thoroughbred Partners while trained by McPeek throughout his career, Frac Daddy ran to a record of five wins and seven seconds in 20 starts for earnings of $701,236.
As a 4-year-old, he won both the Ben Ali (gr. III) at Keeneland and the Eclipse Stakes (Can-II) at Woodbine by widening margins.
During his 3-year-old season, Frac Daddy was second in the Arkansas Derby (gr. I) and Commonwealth Turf Stakes (gr. IIIT). As a 2-year-old, he was second in the Kentucky Jockey Club (gr. II).
Frac Daddy won or placed in graded stakes on dirt, turf and synthetic surfaces. His last start resulted in an eighth-place finish in the June 27 Firecracker Stakes (gr. IIT) at Churchill Downs.
Bred by the Nancy M. Leonard Living Trust out of the Skip Away mare Skipper's Mate, he was a $50,000 purchase by McPeek for Magic City from the 2011 Keeneland September yearling sale when consigned by Eaton Sales.
