Three-time graded winner Slim Shadey (GB) (Val Royal {Fr}–Vino Veritas, by Chief’s Crown) has been retired to Old Friends. The 11-year-old gelding was pensioned by current owner Michael Hui after a nine-year career. Slim Shadey concluded his career with 83 starts, 14 wins, and earnings of $1,278,855.

“I stalked Slim Shadey for more than two years,” Old Friends Founder and President Michael Blowen said. “From a sunny day in the winner’s circle at Saratoga two years ago when owner Michael Dubb agreed to retire him to Old Friends when his racing days were finished until Michael Hui, who claimed him from Dubb, agreed to do the same. And he’s finally here.”
