Lord of Greatness retired to stand at stud in Florida


Lord of Greatness, a stakes-placed earner of $591,327, has been retired from racing and will stand the 2017 breeding season at Stonewall’s Prestige Stallions in Ocala, Fla., for an advertised fee of $2,000.

The 11-year-old son of Greatness won 18 of 74 starts over nine campaigns, racing most recently for owners Candice Warwick and Tish Gonzalez and trainer Nicholas Gonzalez Jr. He finished third last year in the Bob Summers Memorial Cup Stakes at Fort Erie.

Bred in Florida by Marilyn Fazio Seltzer, Lord of Greatness is out of the winning Whadjathink mare Dowager Lady, whose four foals to race were all winners, including Grade 3-placed stakes winner Good Lord, also by Greatness.

Lord of Greatness is from the extended family of Grade 1 winner and notable sire Harlan’s Holiday as well as Irish Group 2 winner Lords.
