MILLIONAIRE KELLY’S LANDING THRIVES IN SEMI-RETIREMENT

You are here

LEXINGTON, KY (Oct. 5, 2017) - Kelly’s Landing, who won the 2006 Phoenix Breeders’ Cup (G3) – now the $250,000 Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix (G2) being run today – banked nearly $2 million for his breeder, Summerplace Farm, and won 10 races, including three Keeneland races. He was trained most of his career by Eddie Kenneally.

Now 16, the gelding earrned a lifestyle that most humans can only dream about.

“He spends the summer at the Lally family’s Summerplace Farm in Lexington and he comes back to Keeneland in the fall and then goes to Florida with us for the winter,” Kenneally said. “He works the Keeneland race meet in the spring and then takes the summer off again.”

Keeneland is a home-away-from-home for Kelly’s Landing, who won an allowance race in 2004 in his second career start then won the aforementioned Phoenix and a 2008 allowance race at age 7. He closed his 27-race career, highlighted by his triumph in the 2007 Dubai Golden Shaheen (G1) in the United Arab Emirates, in 2009 with earnings of $1,853,831.

“He’s got it made,” Kenneally said. “The Lallys like to have him at their farm. He enjoys retirement there and he loves coming back to the track.”
