North America Cup and Breeders Crown champion Pebble Beach will retire from racing at the end of the season and stand stud in 2023.

Diamond Creek announced on Wednesday (Nov. 9) that Pebble Beach will join its stallion roster in 2023. He will become "the first elite pacing stallion in Kentucky since the inception of the 50 per cent stallion bonus" and according to Diamond Creek he will be retired at the end of the racing season to stand for a stud fee of $7,500.

"Pebble Beach is the best son of Downbytheseaside and the first to come to stud," said Diamond Creek's Adam Bowden. "We have long desired to have a pacer in Kentucky and he is the perfect horse to spearhead our expansion into the Kentucky market."

Pebble Beach was brilliant as a two-year-old, winning in 1:48.4 at The Red Mile in the Kentucky Sire Stakes final and capturing a division of the International Stallions Stakes and an elimination of the Breeders Crown at The Meadowlands. He hails from a productive Brittany Farms family that includes high-class performers and multiple millionaires. 

This year as a three-year-old, Pebble Beach took his mark of 1:48.1 in the Breeders Crown at Woodbine Mohawk Park following early season scores there in the Somebeachsomewhere Stakes and North America Cup. He also won the Tattersalls Pace at The Red Mile. 

In total, Pebble Beach currently boasts a career summary reading 15-8-3 from 26 starts with more than $1.86 million earned.
