Barbados wins the Pelican Stakes last February at Tampa Bay Downs.

Grade 3 winner Barbados has been retired from racing and will enter stud for the 2017 breeding season at Shamrock Farm in Woodbine, Md., for an advertised fee of $2,500.

The 5-year-old son of Speightstown had four wins in 16 starts and earned $377,241. He won the Grade 3 Hutcheson Stakes and the Spectacular Bid and Pelican stakes. He also hit the board in the Grade 2 Amsterdam Stakes, Grade 3 Phoenix Stakes, and Grade 3 Carry Back Stakes.

Barbados raced for owner Suzanne Stables and trainer Michael Tomlinson. He was initially campaigned by WinStar Farm, which sold Barbados at the end of his 2-year-old campaign for $340,000 during its annual horses-of-racing-age consignment at the 2014 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. All of his stakes activity came after the transaction.

Bred in Kentucky by Tommy Town Thoroughbreds, Barbados is the first foal out of the stakes-winning Street Cry mare Northern Station and her only winner from three foals to race. The extended family includes Grade 2 winner Advice and Grade 3 winners Polonius and Ascutney.
