(LEX 18)– 2017 Kentucky Derby and Florida Derby winner, Always Dreaming, has been retired and will join the stallion ranks at Winstar Farm.

His win in the Run for the Roses was by two and three-quarters of a length, the largest margin in the last half dozen years.

He was bought for $350,000 at the September Keeneland Yearling Sales and won just more than $2.4 million in career earnings.
