Trainer Travis Umphrey as announced he is retiring one of his star pupils, APs Money Maker. The six-year-old daughter of Cardmaster Hanover-Mint Kondition has had five atrial fibrillations (abnormal heart rhythm) over her career, which caused the connections to retire the 19-time winner.
"That was her fifth time (in her stall at First Line Training Centre) about two months ago and enough was enough," Umphrey stated.
Last season, the pacing mare celebrated her biggest year of her career with $276,150 in earnings while setting the Mohawk track record of 1:49.1. "If you told me that she would set the track record when I moved here (from Alberta), I would have laughed," Umphrey commented. "That was a pretty nice accomplishment on her part. We had a lot of fun with her and it was a sad way to end her career."
APs Money Maker was primarily driven by Rick Zeron while in Ontario and is owned by Terry Hamilton, Joe Tinelli and Shir Win Racing Stable.
Umphrey has confirmed APs Money Maker is in foal to Mach Three. To watch the video with Umphrey on the Mohawk Racetrack website, please click below: http://bcove.me/e082d5g5
