Sarazen's 1924 wins included the International Special No.3 at the Latonia Race Track in Covington, Kentucky over a field of top American and European horses. While setting a Latonia track record, 3-year-old Sarazen defeated Belmont Stakes winner Mad Play, the future Hall of Fame filly Princess Doreen. ("The Princess" came back to beat him in the 1926 Saratoga Handicap), and Pierre Wertheimer's 4-year-old colt Epinard, the champion 2-year-old of France who at the end of the 1924 season would be voted American Champion Older Male Horse.
Sarazen was named Horse of the Year for the second straight time in 1925, winning five of his ten starts. Because he had been gelded and could not sire any offspring, Sarazen continued to race for another two years but became raucous and unwilling to make much of an effort. He was retired after the 1928 season to Brookdale Farm on Spur Road near Lexington, Kentucky.
Sarazen died at age nineteen on December 12, 1940. Following its creation, he was posthumously inducted into the United States' National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1957.
