Multiple graded stakes winner Mr Freeze (To Honor and Serve–Heavenly Cat, by Tabasco Cat) has been retired to stud at Raimonde Farms Ltd. in Wooster, Ohio. Owned by Jim Bakke and Gerald Isbister and trained by Dale Romans, the 7-year-old chestnut retired with a 6-4-2 record in 19 starts, earning $1,595,600 over his career.

“He was a gifted horse with a great mind,” said Romans. “He ran with the best and we couldn't be happier about this opportunity.”

Mr. Freeze was a graded stakes winner at ages three, four and five, racking up four graded tallies overall to go with two Grade I placings. He retires to Ohio as a result of a deal brokered by Paul Devine of Devine Line Stables, an advocate for the Ohio Thoroughbred breeding industry.

“I was looking for a talented, durable runner with a tremendous female family. Mr. Freeze certainly fit those requirements,” said Devine. “Not only did Mr. Freeze win almost $1.6 million dollars on the track, but he is also a beautiful horse and I think Ohio breeders will be very pleased when they see him.”
