Flavor is the ultimate racing warrior. He’s 11 years old and just retired from racing this month. What an amazing athlete! And yes, Flavor is actually his registered name. Just one word – Flavor. That seems appropriate for a celebrity as big as Flavor (kind of like Elvis).
His history tells the story of a true class horse. Flavor is a Claiborne homebred, with a pedigree full of Thoroughbred royalty. His first race trainer was the famous Al Stall, Jr. In 2009, Flavor broke his maiden with a win at Keeneland. The late, great Garrett Gomez rode him to that victory. Many others soon followed, as Flavor hit the boards regularly over the next eight years.
