Seelster Farms, along with owners, New Destiny Stable and Al McIntosh Holdings Ltd. announce the retirement of Camluck from active stud duty.

As a racehorse, Camluck himself earned more than a million dollars and took a time trial mark at the age of five of 1:48.4 at Lexington more than 22 years ago. Camluck was inducted into the Horse Racing Hall Of Fame in 2003 and was also the first Canadian horse to be inducted in the United States Harness Racing Hall Of Fame in 2008. Today Camluck is the sire with total progeny earnings of more than $215 million - more than any other North American sire.

Camluck has also made his mark as a prolific broodmare sire, with his daughters producing the likes of I LUV THE NITELIFE p, 2, 1:50.1s, 3, 1:48.4f ($1,947,511), AMERICAN JEWEL p, 2, 1:50.2s, 3, 1:48.2s($1,834,823), ARACACHE HANOVER p, 2, 1:53.1s, 3, 1:50.1f, 1:48.1f ($1,717,785), THINKING OUT LOUD p, 2, 1:52.4s, 3, 1:47.4s, 4, 1:47.2 ($1,601,550), DEUCE SEELSTER p, 2, 1:52s, 3, 1:50.3s, 1:49.4($1,149,825), KINDLY POET p, 3, 1:51s, 1:49.4s ($1,014,690), etc.

"It has been an honour to work with Camluck and owners Bob and Al McIntosh and New Destiny Stable, for all of his stallion career," said Ann Straatman, reproduction manager at Seelster. "He has been a once-in-a-lifetime horse and it is a privilege to continue to care for Camluck into his retirement."

Joe Riga SAID...

Definitely a great stallion but also as a fan of the game he was a pleasure to watch on the track as well. Every once in a while I like to go down memory road and think of the great horses I had the pleasure of watching race over the last 40 years and he was definitely one of them.
