The charmed career of five-year-old Comma to the Top has drawn to a close as the gelding has been officially retired from the racing scene effective on Dec. 8. Perhaps his best race will always be remembered as good win in the Grade I 2010 Cash Call Futurity. At this point in time, Comma to the Top is done with racing but he will stay with trainer Peter Miller and enter into a completely new career – he will become a stable pony for Miller.

Recalling a fond memory of the Cash Call Futurity, Millers notes for Blood Horse,

That day he won the Futurity gave us our biggest thrill. It was pouring rain and there was a long delay in the paddock for a shoe repair, but he won easily.

Comma to the Top was raced by Gary Barber, Roger Birnbaum and Kevin Tsujihara and he has a lot of racetrack experience. But as a stable pony, he will be retraining to learn his new job.

Miller said that teaching a horse to be a good stable pony usually takes about six months. They have to relearn many things and get used to a completely different saddle.

Comma to the Top was sired by Bwana Charlie out of Maggie’s Storm by Stormy Atlantic. He completes a good racing career as a millionaire, having raced in 33 starts, winning 14 of he races. He became an eight-time stakes winner and won three of them in 2013 including the Grade II Tom Fool Handicap and the Grade III Los Angeles Handicap. Comma to the Top earned a total of $1,349,406 in his races.

Good luck to the hard-running Comma to the Top.
