Grade 1-Placed Loggins Retired, Stud Plans Pending

Loggins (inside, purple and orange silks) finishes second to Forte in the 2022 Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland.

Loggins, who finished a close second to eventual champion Forte in last year's Grade 1 Breeders' Futurity at Keeneland, has been retired from racing with stud plans to be determined, Thoroughbred Daily News reports.

The 3-year-old son of Ghostzapper raced twice, winning on debut at Churchill Downs by 8 1/2 lengths over a field that included future G3 Gotham Stakes winner Raise Cain. He then finished second by a neck to Forte in the Breeders' Futurity.

Trainer Brad Cox told the TDN that the colt was being pointed for the classics following his Breeders' Futurity victory, but “a setback he could not come back from” kept him from returning to the races.

Cox trained Loggins for the partnership of Spendthrift Farm, Steve Landers Racing, Martin S. Schwartz, Michael Dubb, Ten Strike Racing, Jim Bakke, Titletown Racing Stables, Kueber Racing, Big Easy Racing, and Winners Win.

Bred in Kentucky by Popatop LLC, Loggins is out of the Grade 3-winning Blame mare Beyond Blame.
