Holy Boss, a Grade 2 winner, has been retired from racing and will enter stud at Anchor & Hope Farm in Port Deposit, Md., for the 2018 breeding season.

The 5-year-old son of Street Boss won six of 22 starts for earnings of $771,527. His notable wins include the Grade 2 Amsterdam Stakes and the non-graded Chick Lang, Bachelor, and Duncan F. Kenner stakes, with placings in the Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt and Grade 1 King’s Bishop stakes.

Holy Boss raced the bulk of his career for owner Jerry Durant and trainer Steve Asmussen. His final two starts came for Louis Merryman, owner of Anchor & Hope Farm, with the same trainer.

Bred in Kentucky by Adena Springs, Holy Boss is out of the winning Holy Bull mare Holy Grace, who is the dam of three winners from four runners. He is a half-brother to 2017 Queen’s Plate and Woodbine Oaks winner Holy Helena.

His extended family includes Grade/Group 2 winner Black Cash, Daiwa Carson, and Rookie Sensation as well as Grade 3 winners Mark One and Pleasant Prince.
