Extravagant Kid (Kiss the Kid–Pretty Extravagant, by With Distinction), winner of the 2021 G1 Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan, has been retired from racing at the age of nine.

Trained by Brendan Walsh, the gelding retires with $1,704,683 in earnings from 56 starts, which includes 15 wins, 18 runner-up finishes and seven thirds. David Ross, racing under the banner of DARRS, Inc., claimed the horse four years ago.

“We had him scanned and it looked like he was starting to get the beginning of a bone spur,” Ross said.

“We are on a mission to find him the perfect place because he has brought so much joy to everyone who has been a part of his life. He will thrive in his second career, possibly as a riding horse because he loves to do trails. We want to make sure he is happy and productive going forward.”
