Kentucky Derby Winner Silver Charm Retired to Old Friends FarmBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · December 26, 2014
Silver Charm, the gray Thoroughbred stallion who was named champion three-year-old male of 1997, has been retired to Old Friends Farm in Georgetown, Kentucky. The horse has been at stud at JBBA Shizunai Stallion Station in Japan since 2005.
Silver Charm won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, and finished second in the Belmont Stakes. As a four-year-old, he won the Dubai World Cup and was second in the Breeders' Cup Classic. He had 12 wins in 24 career starts, earning nearly $7 million in racing purses before being inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 2007.
Trained by Bob Baffert, Silver Charm was conditioned and raced on Stamm 30, a feed product manufactured by Hallway Feeds and containing micronutrients from Kentucky Equine Research (KER). Hallway Feeds has been a KER Team Member for more than two decades and has provided feeds for a number of top contenders in the Triple Crown race series.
