Popular 8-year-old gelding Spooky Channel (English Channel–Spooky Kitten, by Kitten's Joy) has been retired from racing and will be heading to Old Friends Farm, according to a post on X by trainer Jason Barkley.
The four-time graded winner posted a career record of 31-13-6-1 and earnings of $1,380,142. Bred in Kentucky by Calumet Farm, the $10,000 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall yearling concluded his career for owner NBS Stable and Barkley with a runner-up finish in the GII FanDuel Kentucky Turf Cup S. at Kentucky Downs Sept. 9.
Good as time as any to let everyone know that Spooky Channel has been retired and he will be headed to @Oldfriendsfarm. Thanks to everyone who played a role in his success. He doesn't owe us anything! pic.twitter.com/3bAI9UuCt8
