37. Yup, no early retirement to the stud farm for Mind That Bird.
Like Funny Cide he'll race for quite a few years barring injury.

When his racing days were over, Funny Cide's trainer kept him as a stable pony for a while. Because of back injuries that interfered with his duties as a pony he was retires last year to the Kentucky Horse Park where he's spoiled by visitors.

I envision a similar future for Mind that Bird.
