Tara's Tango wins the Rancho Bernardo Stakes in August.

Tara’s Tango, the California-based Grade 1 winner who was among the top fillies on the West Coast in 2016, has retired from racing and will become a broodmare at Stonestreet Farms.

Stonestreet owner Barbara Banke confirmed Monday that Tara’s Tango, a 4-year-old by Unbridled’s Song, was retired following her fourth-place finish Nov. 5 in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint at Santa Anita. Banke said Tara’s Tango will be bred in the spring to Medaglia d’Oro.

Jerry Hollendorfer trained Tara’s Tango through a 14-start career, during which she won five races and $806,004. Her graded wins at Santa Anita included the Grade 1 Santa Margarita and Grade 2 Santa Maria; she also won the Grade 3 Rancho Bernardo at Del Mar.
