Zippy Chippy moves to retirement farm


Zippy Chippy, the gelding who became famous for losing all 100 of his lifetime starts, has been retired to the Old Friends retirement farm's Bobby Frankel division in Greenfield Center, N.Y.

Owner and trainer Felix Monserrate bought the New York-bred Compliance gelding for $2,500 and earned $30,834 with him. Zippy Chippy, now 19, finished second eight times and third 12 times in his long career. When he retired in 2004, he briefly served as a track pony at Finger Lakes.

Zippy Chippy will enjoy retirement alongside seven other retired racehorses, most notably 1992 Travers and Jim Dandy winner and millionaire Thunder Rumble.
