Tamarando earned his biggest win in the 2013 Del Mar Futurity.

Grade 1 winner Tamarando will enter stud at Harris Farms in Coalinga, Calif., for the 2017 breeding season and will stand for an advertised fee of $2,500.

The 6-year-old son of Bertrando retires with four wins in 31 starts over five seasons of racing for earnings of $722,652, highlighted by wins in the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity, Grade 3 El Camino Real Derby, and the listed Real Quiet Stakes. His seven stakes placings include third-place efforts in the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity and Grade 1 FrontRunner Stakes.

Jerry Hollendorfer trained the horse into his 4-year-old campaign, when he was moved to the barn of Jeff Bonde.

Tamarando ran as a homebred for Larry and Marianne Williams and is out of the Grade 3-placed Dehere mare Tamarack Bay. All seven of the dam’s foals to race are winners, and six have won or placed in stakes company, including stakes winners Luckarack and U’narack.

The stallion’s extended family includes Grade 2 winner Winning Pact and English Group 2 winner Half a Year.
