Thoroughbred racehorse Indy Point’s future is being decided even as you read this short article. He severely strained a suspensory ligament earlier in December during regular training on the track. On Dec. 29 the Paulick Report and the Blood Horse and others in close contact with Indy Point’s connections, said that the stallion was transported to his home base before Christmas.

Indy Point’s trainer, Richard Mandella confirmed this fact with the Daily Racing Form on Sunday as well.

Mandella also mentioned that Indy Point may “possibly be retired.” He said the horse’s “racing future will be evaluated after the New Year.”

Indy Point, sired by Indygo Shiner, was bred in Argentina. His most recent race was in the 1-1/2 mile Breeders’ Cup Turf held at Santa Anita on Nov. 2. He finished third in the Turf.

Indy Point started racing in South America before he began running in the United States – here he had his first race on July 24, winning it, in the Wicker Stakes, DelMar.

When Indy Point was four, he had earned $456,580 of his career earnings of $959,961 in North America.

His connections will make the best decision for Indy Point’s future.
