GEORGETOWN — Three-time Santa Anita Handicap winner Game On Dude will live at Old Friends after being retired last month.
The 7-year-old gelding was trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert and co-owned by Major League Baseball executive Joe Torre.
Game On Dude won 16 of 34 career starts, including eight Grade I stakes, and earned just less than $6.5 million.
Baffert says he wanted the gelding to be "somewhere where he would be loved on," and Old Friends will provide a lot of interaction.
Arrangements are being made for Game On Dude's flight to Kentucky from his base in California.
"We are thrilled that Bob Baffert and the owners of Game on Dude are entrusting Old Friends with their spectacular racehorse," said Michael Blowen, founder and president of Old Friends. "It's such an honor to show him off to all of his fans and visitors. Over the last few weeks, Bob asked a lot of detailed questions about his care."
