Olmodavor, a two-time Grade 3 winner, has been retired and will stand at Frank Stronach's Adena Springs, according to trainer Richard Mandella.

Mandella was quoted in a press release issued by Oak Tree Racing Association, whose meet opens at Santa Anita on Sept. 29.

Mandella said Olmodavor has shipped to Adena Springs Kentucky in Versailles, Ky., and could stand there or at the farm's Florida division in Ocala.

"He was wearing a little thin, and it was getting time to retire, so we did," Mandella said.

Olmodavor, a 5-year-old A.P. Indy horse, won the Grade 3 Whirlaway Handicap at Fair Grounds this year. That was his second Grade 3 score, coming after his victory in the 2003 Native Diver Handicap. Olmodavor retires with a record of 15-5-5-1 and $706,540 in earnings.
