Outstanding Sydney warrior DOTHRAKI has been retired.
Not to stud because he is a gelding, but his retirement has given one lady the happiest moment of her life.
Dothraki (Mossman-Volantis), who won $1,654,785 in prizemoney, after costing Tripe Crown Syndicate just $45,000 to buy as a yearling…..8 years ago.
He won 8 races and was placed a further 24 times. He was a multiple stakes winner and was Gr 1 placed.
And all that is wonderful.
But this morning what happened in regards to him, made thousands of people on social media well up.
Watch the Video 📺:
After his dedicated band of Triple Crown owners decided to pull the plug on his distinguished career, they had a meeting.
The meeting was to find a suitable home for him, one where he would live out his days in the deserved happiness he earned.
Enter Ella Yarrow an employee of Team Snowden and Dothraki’s (known around the stables as Dot) faithful and loving strapper for the past couple of years or so.
With a camera hidden in the Team Snowden’s kitchen, Ella was brought in and told that Dot had retired.
She was then asked, ‘what would you do if Dot was yours now?’
She answered quickly and succinctly: “I’d love for him to have a nice break and have some fun in his retirement.
“Then I’d retrain him to do fun stuff….just see what he likes.”
A moment later, Ella was told that the owners had decided Dot was allowed to live with her.
She burst into tears ….tears of joy.
“Thanks guys, thanks so much. I can assure you he will get a lot of love.”
No surer bet ever existed.
