    Too Darn Hot retired after picking up injury in the aftermath of winning the Sussex Stakes
    along with Calyx who I believe has also retired and Quorto not yet seen on course as a 3 y/o its been a pretty harsh year for the top two year olds of last season and another nail in the Breeding of Dar Re Mi who foals super horse yet they come with a health warning.

    So sorry to read this news Nathan, he was shaping up to be the top 3yo this season.

    At least we will be able to look forward to seeing his progeny in the years to come, would have hated to have seen him break down on course, his future at stud is secured so have a
    long and happy retirement Too Darn Hot :heart:

    Former Champion Hurdler Jezki has been retired.

    Still running with credit in Handicaps last year, but it looks the right decision.

    Jezki was a great old warrior, never quite captured the public imagination despite winning at all three spring festivals; glad to see him safely retired

    Good to see Ueueteotl go out in one piece, looked as stiff as a board last few times I seen him.

    Always kept an eye out for him.

    Yeah, backed him a couple of times this year but the spark (if not entirely gone) was certainly beginning to fade. As for Civil Unrest, he’s the kind of horse who I can’t really imagine racing without. First run was in January 2011 and has will be very odd to see a Musselburgh jumps card without him. Don’t really follow the Northern jumpers a huge amount but both of them are definitely horses I’ve a lot of time for.

    Moayadd (of the Neil Mulholland yard) has been retired. A full-brother to Saamidd he was a Godolphin reject who won 4 races, all in 2017.

    Happy retirement Crystal Ocean :heart:
    And well done the work rider for getting him pulled up in time before irreparable damage was done.

    Yes, fingers crossed Crystal Ocean recovers and goes on to his second career as a stallion. So many top class horses seem to have been lost recently, don’t want to lose him too.

    About time they retired Top Notch Tonto bless him. Ran to a hell of a standard at his pomp. Was a group 3 winner and finished 2nd in a soft ground QEII behind Olympic Glory. Excelled on softer ground at his best with a career best RPR of 120. Now he’s milling around off a rating about to drop into the 60’s as a 9yo racing for change.

    Good wishes to Crystal Ocean as he recovers from his career ending injury and retires to stud.
    What a harrowing season this has been so many top class horses sustaining injuries and sadly worst..so thankful that Crystal Ocean was able to be saved wish him a long and happy retirement. :heart: Jac
