A disappointing track gallop on Monday has forced glamour mare Tuesday Joy into retirement.
â€œWe tested her at trackwork and my rider Mark Newnham said the mare felt listless and was just not herself,” trainer Gai Waterhouse said.
â€œI just don’t think she has got over the trip to Dubai. Those overseas trips can take a lot out of a horse.”
Tuesday Joy, owned by John Singleton, was being prepared for this yearâ€™s Melbourne Cup but had not made a spring appearance.
During a stellar racing career, Tuesday won seven races and banked more than $3.2 million in prizemoney.
She retires with Group I wins in the BMW, Ranvet Stakes, Chipping Norton Stakes and the Coolmore Classic.
