Vorticity Retired From Racing; Stud Deal Pending

Vorticity | Jim McCue, MJC

Matthew Schera's stakes-winning and MGSP 7-year-old Vorticity (Distorted Humor–Tar Heel Mom, by Flatter) has been retired. A $220,000 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic juvenile purchase in 2015, and later that year annexed the Marylander S. before seconds in the GIII Jerome S. and GIII Withers S. as an early season 3-year-old. He added a third in the 2018 GII Pat O'Brien S., and retires with a record of 18-4-6-3 and earnings of $347,040. “I look at a lot of stride data, and Vorticity had a very large stride and he had a very efficient way of going,” Schera noted in a release. Out of MGSW and GISP Tar Heel Mom (Flatter), Vorticity is a half to GSW and MGISP Scrappy T (Fit To Fight). A stud deal is pending for the dark bay, who was catalogued as a stallion prospect to the Keeneland November sale as hip 3371 and consigned by South Point Sales. Inquiries can be made to South Point's Mike Recio at 859-221-1809 or [email protected]. Additional information, including videos, is available here.
