Courtlandt Farm's Greatest Honour (Tapit–Tiffany's Honour, by Street Cry {Ire}), winner of Gulfstream's GII Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth S. and GIII Holy Bull S., has retired to stud at Spendthrift Farm and will stand the 2023 breeding season for a fee of $7,500 S&N.

“Greatest Honour has one of the best combinations of pedigree, looks and ability among the sons of Tapit that we've evaluated,” said Ned Toffey, Spendthrift general manager. “Unfortunately, he came up with an injury in last year's Florida Derby as the odds-on favorite before the Triple Crown. Prior to that, he was so dominant at Gulfstream that he was in the top three along with Essential Quality and Life Is Good as the favorites for the Kentucky Derby in many of the early wagering pools.

Bred and owned by Don Adam's Courtlandt Farm, Greatest Honour retires with earnings of $446,440. He is out of Tiffany's Honour, a half-sister to Belmont S. winner Jazil and champion and Classic heroine Rags to Riches, in addition to Breeders' Cup victor Man of Iron. Greatest Honour's second dam, Better Than Honour, was the Broodmare of the Year in 2007.

“Greatest Honour's second dam is Better Than Honour who needs no introduction, and he's a big, strong son of Tapit that has 'classic' written all over him,” added Toffey. “Because he did not get to fulfill his tremendous potential on the track, we believe Greatest Honour offers a lot of value and upside now to breeders for $7,500.”

Trained by Shug McGaughey, Greatest Honour broke his maiden as a 2-year-old, to go on a three-race win streak at Gulfstream, including the Holy Bull followed a win in the Fountain of Youth.

Greatest Honour is available for inspection at Spendthrift.
