After nine months of his last appearance, Sharp Azteca will be retired from racing. Ownership has decided to move to the next chapter with this magnificent horse. For now, Sharp Azteca will remain at Gelfenstein Farm in Ocala. No decision has been made where he’ll begin his new career as a stallion.
“It has been an honor for me to train a horse like Sharp Azteca. He’s the type of horse that every trainer wants to have on his barn. Winner of six Stakes races (five Graded) including the G1 Cigar Mile, one of the most prestigious races in America run over a mile on dirt. From the first day I saw Sharp Azteca I knew that he was a special horse, together we managed to compete at the highest level in ten different racetracks. I would like to thank Mr. Rodriguez and Mr. Scharf for entrusting me with the care of Sharp Azteca, a horse that I will always carry in my heart. I’m pretty sure that, just as he was a brilliant runner, he will also be an extraordinary stallion.” Jorge Navarro
