It has been announced that top homebred trotting mare Allerage Star 4,1:52.3f ($420,090) has been retired due to injury.

The injury is a fractured pelvis.

Allerage Star, a daughter of Angus Hall out of the trotting mare Starry Eyed (by Muscles Yankee), owned by Jeff Gural’s Little E LLC, David Stolz, Arthur Geiger and Jason Settlemoir, earned more than $415,000 in 62 career starts. The quick-footed mare won 17 of those 62 starts, while finishing first, second or third 36 times. Allerage Star took a lifetime mark last year of 1:52.3 at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono Downs.

Allerage Star made her last career start at Harrah’s Philadelphia where she finished fourth and was immediately sent to New Bolton Veterinarian Clinic where the x-rays revealed a fractured pelvis. Allerage Star was immediately retired and sent home to Jeff and Paula Gural’s Allerage Farm in Stanfordville, New York where she will be bred to Father Patrick.

“We had a lot of fun with Allerage Star,” said Jeff Gural. “We thought she was ready for another big year and we staked her pretty heavily, but that’s horse racing. I look forward to seeing her babies racing on the track as she had a big heart with plenty of ‘go.’ Hopefully that will translate into fast offspring.”

Allerage Farm has been in the Standardbred breeding industry since the late 1980s. Currently, they have two breeding facilities, one in Stanfordville, New York and one in Sayre, Pennsylvania. Allerage Farm has over 100 horses between the two locations.
