=== Astrology retired to Taylor Made ===
 Nicholasville,  KY (Sports Network) - Former Triple Crown competitor Astrology
 has  been retired from  racing and will stand at Taylor Made Stallions. The 4-
 year-old  colt  had been  idle since finishing  sixth in an allowance/optional
 claiming race at Churchill Downs in June.
 "Astrology is one of the best-looking horses I've seen by A.P. Indy, who's one
 of  the  best sire  of  sires  in the  world,  and  he's bred  identically  to
 Bernardini,"  said  Ben  Taylor,  Vice President  of  Taylor  Made  Stallions.
 "Astrology  was a  top juvenile  around  one turn,  and showed  that he  could
 stretch  out his  speed and quality to be a Classic 3-year-old. We're thankful
 to  Mrs. Barbara  Banke, George  Bolton and  the entire  Stonestreet team  for
 choosing Taylor Made."
 Astrology  competed  in the 2011 Triple  Crown prep races, finishing second in
 both  the Sunland Derby  and Jerome Stakes. Ridden by Mike Smith, he was third
 in  the Preakness  Stakes as  a 15-1  longshot, beaten  just 2  1/4-lengths by
 "Astrology  is an absolutely beautiful individual and very classic looking. He
 had  a ton of ability, and I have no doubt that he was a Grade 1 winner on his
 best day," stated trainer Steve Asmussen.
 Astrology, owned by Stonestreet Stables and George Bolton, retires with career
 earnings  of $516,977 in 12 starts while posting three wins, three seconds and
 three thirds.
