Grade 1 Winner Keen Ice Retired From Racing

Keen IceGrade 1 winner Keen Ice , who will forever be remembered for his upset victory over Triple Crown winner American Pharoah  in the 2015 Travers Stakes (G1), will miss the Nov. 4 Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) at Del Mar due to a ankle injury and has been retired.
 
Co-owner Jerry Crawford of Donegal Racing said the 5-year-old son of Curlin  "banged up his ankle galloping" the other day and that the area was still showing signs of swelling. The bay horse would have had to miss a scheduled breeze Oct. 27 and with the Classic already slated to be his final start, the decision was made to retire him to Calumet Farm.
 
"The swelling didn't come down yesterday the way we thought it would and he was supposed to breeze tomorrow and ... it throws the timing off," Crawford said. "We had intended to retire him after this race anyway."
