Multiple graded stakes-winning warrior Hogy (Offlee Wild) has been retired to Old Friends, the equine retirement haven near Georgetown, Ky. A winner of 19 of his 55 starts over nine seasons of campaigning, the 10-year-old gelding won or placed in 21 blacktype events, including GIII victories in the 2013 Hanshin Cup S., the 2017 Kentucky Downs Turf Sprint S., and the 2018 Canadian Turf S. Hogy, claimed in 2017 for $80,000 by current owner Michael Hui, earned over $1.3 million and was last trained by Mike Maker.

“It’s always rewarding to pension one of racing’s great warriors,” said Old Friends founder and president Michael Blowen. “Hogy has seen it all and done it all–multiple tracks, multiple surfaces, competing in claimers up to grade one stakes. Now we hope he will just enjoy being loved and admired by his friends and fans.”
