Bern Identity retired with 6 wins from 13 starts, including a victory in the Tale of the Cat Stakes.

Grade 2 winner Bern Identity has been retired from racing and will begin his stallion career at PJK Team Jamaica in Jamaica.

The 6-year-old son of Bernstein retired with 6 wins in 13 starts over three seasons of racing for earnings of $877,200. He ran his entire career for owners George and Lori Hall and trainer Kelly Breen, last racing in November 2014 when finishing second in the Fabulous Strike Handicap at Penn National. He last breezed Feb. 10, 2015, at the Palm Meadows Training Center.

Bern Identity’s most notable victories came in the Grade 2 Sanford Stakes, the listed Jean Lafitte Stakes, and the non-graded Dave’s Friend, My Frenchman, and Tale of the Cat stakes. A one-turn specialist, he also earned placings in the Grade 2 Hopeful and the Grade 3 Delta Downs Jackpot and Phoenix stakes.

Bred in Kentucky by a partnership including Galleria Bloodstock, Crosshaven Bloodstock, and Petaluma Bloodstock, Bern Identity is out of the Grade 3-winning Good and Tough mare Maddalena, whose four winners from five runners also include Turkish champion Agresivo and stakes-placed Battle of Evermore.

Bern Identity’s extended family includes Grade 3-placed Haley’s Lolipop and stakes winner Foxie G.

The deal to stand Bern Identity in Jamaica was brokered by Chad Schumer Bloodstock and Bradley Thoroughbreds.

Bern Identity follows multiple Grade 3 winner Silver Medallion as U.S.-based runners who will debut at stud in Jamaica for 2016, with the latter having sold at the Keeneland January horses-of-all-ages sale earlier this year.
