Grade I winner Harmonize (Scat Daddy–Mesa Fresca, by Sky Mesa) has been retired from racing to Brookdale Farm, owner Larkin Armstrong announced via Twitter Monday. According to Armstrong, the GI Del Mar Oaks winner has been booked to More Than Ready for the 2018 season.
“She has been a dream horse winning graded stakes at two, three and four,” Armstrong wrote.
Winner of the GIII J.P. Morgan Chase Jessamine S. at Keeneland at two, the Bill Mott trainee rallied to capture the Del Mar Oaks as a sophomore in 2016 and added a runner-up finish in the GI Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup S. later that year. She made five starts as a 4-year-old in 2017, culminating with a neck victory in Saratoga’s GIII Glens Falls S. Sept. 2. Bred in Kentucky by Jack Swain III, Harmonize retires with a record of 5-4-1 from 16 career starts and earnings of $827,860.
Harmonize’s dam, Mesa Fresca, sold to Cheveley Park Stud for $2 million in foal to War Front at the 2017 Fasig-Tipton November Sale.
