Another Thoroughbred race horse has retired from racing and his connections are making preparations to place him into the Keeneland sale. On Dec. 19 Blood Horse announced that the multiple graded stakes winner Mission Approved retired from the racecourse.

Mission Approved is the handy winner of the 2011 Grade IT Woodford Reserve Manhattan Handicap. Stud planning for the 10-year-old stallion and race horse remains pending for 2014 since he is to be sold at the January mixed sale in Keeneland where he is consigned by Bluegrass Thoroughbred Services.

In June 2010 Mission Approved was claimed by Naipaul Chatterpaul for $35,000. Just one month later, Mission Approved was entered into the Man O’War Stakes and came in second to Gio Ponti at Belmont Park. When he met Gio Ponti again in the Grade IT Manhattan Handicap, Mission Approved beat him in a good wire-to-wire win.

Mission Approved was bred by Dr. William F. Coyro Jr. He has eight wins, five seconds and one third out of 29 starts. His earnings amount to a total of $827,210.
