Stonestreet homebreds and Grade I winners Clairiere (m, 5, Curlin-Cavorting, by Bernardini) and Pauline's Pearl (m, 5, Tapit-Hot Dixie Chick, by Dixie Union) have been retired, the Central Kentucky farm said on X Wednesday. Both were trained by Steve Asmussen for their four years on the racetrack and have returned to their birthplace.

Clairiere captured four Grade I events throughout her career, including back-to-back editions of the GI Ogden Phipps S. in 2022-23. Last seen finishing fourth in Saturday's GI Longines Breeders' Cup Distaff, she retires with a record of 22-8-6-3 and earnings of $3,266,392.

Winner of the 2022 GI La Troienne S., Pauline's Pearl last visited the winner's circle in her penultimate race in the GII Fleur de Lis S. this summer. She retires with a record of 20-8-3-3 and earnings of $2,146,800.

Stonestreet indicated both mares will join the farm's broodmare band, but breeding plans are yet to be determined.
