Millionaire World Champion Badlands Nitro is retiring to the breeding shed at Winbak Farm of New York as of this week. Badlands Nitro, the winner of the Hempt, Art Rooney, the Battle of the Brandywine and over $1.5 million has been dealing with minor sickness and allergies leading owner/trainer George Teague, and owner John Celii to make the decision to stop racing him.

"Nitro has been fighting allergies and some slight sickness since the Little Brown Jug, and has not been 100% since. It's disappointing we cannot race in other stake engagements but he has far proven himself to be an outstanding individual, and we need to do what is best for him," stated owner/trainer George Teague.

Badlands Nitro is the richest horse by Badlands Hanover, who equaled the World Record for two-year-old pacing colts on a five-eighths mile track and made over $1.4 million his three-year-old year.

"Badlands Nitro is one of the most complete horses I have ever trained; he is versatile, sound and most importantly he has stepped up when he has needed to. He is one of the most professional horses I have ever worked with," stated George Teague earlier in the season.

Badlands Nitro will be standing stud at Winbak of New York for $6,000 in 2009. The New York Sire Stakes Program is a very lucrative program with over $15 million in estimated purses for 2009.
