The connections of millionaire world champion Badlands Nitro p,3,1:50f ($1,562,638) have announced that this week the three-year-old son of Badlands Hanover will be retired to the breeding shed at Winbak Farm of New York.

Badlands Nitro, the winner of the Hempt, Art Rooney, the Battle of the Brandywine and over $1.5 million has been dealing with minor sickness and allergies leading his owners, trainer George Teague, Jr. and John Celii, to make the decision to stop racing him.

“'Nitro' has been fighting allergies and some slight sickness since the Little Brown Jug, and has not been 100% since. It’s disappointing we cannot race in other stake engagements, but he has far proven himself to be an outstanding individual, and we need to do what is best for him,” Teague stated.

Badlands Nitro is the richest horse by Badlands Hanover, who equaled the World Record for two-year-old pacing colts on a five-eighths mile track and made over $1.4 million his three-year-old year.

“Badlands Nitro is one of the most complete horses I have ever trained; he is versatile, sound and most importantly he has stepped up when he has needed to. He is one of the most professional horses I have ever worked with,” stated George Teague earlier in the season.

Badlands Nitro will be standing stud at Winbak of New York for $6,000 in 2009. The New York Sire Stakes Program is a very lucrative program with over $15 million in estimated purses for 2009.
