On the heels of a ninth-place finish in a conditioned pace at Woodbine Racetrack on Saturday evening, the connections of Primetime Bobcat have announced the retirement of the former World Record holder.

The 11-year-old son of Abercrombie, who had the harness racing industry buzzing when he sizzled to a 1:47.2 mile at Woodbine Racetrack on May 13, 2006, hangs up his hopples with 48 lifetime wins and earnings in excess of $740,000.

Primetime Bobcat was trained by Anthony Montini, who co-owned the charismatic gelding with partners William Rogers, Basil Michele and Joseph Rogers.

"I always said tf he wasn't going to be a useful horse, he would come and live in my backyard," Montini told Trot Insider. "He doesn't owe us anything."

Primetime Bobcat, who battled back from a number of injuries throughout the course of his career, won multiple editions of the Open Pace in addition to the $100,000 Woodbine Gold Cup Invitational, the $115,500 Spring Pacing Championship and the $120,000 New Hampshire Sweepstakes.
