Thoroughbred colt New Year’s Day suffers injury

As first reported by Paulick Report on Dec. 26, the talented Thoroughbred colt New Year’s Day has suffered an injury and has subsequently been retired to heal and eventually begin his stud career.

New Year’s Day ran in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile on Nov. 2, showing great racing form.

Bred in Kentucky by Clearsky Farms, New Year’s Day is sired by Street Cry. He was sold at Keeneland September Yearling Sale for $425,000 to Ben Glass, who was acting as agent for Gary and Mary West.

New Year’s Day was out for a breeze after the Breeders’ Cup on Dec. 15. His injury was discovered after a routine gallop earlier this week. The Bob Baffert-trained colt sustained a chipped sesamoid in his left hind leg

Baffert said that New Year’s Day’s injury is a non-displaced injury. He referred to the injury as “gut-wrenching” and “a freak deal.”

Gary and Mary West jointly own the colt and made the decision to retire the young horse on Christmas Day.
