Russian Camelot has been retired to stand at stud

Dual G1 winner Russian Camelot will be retired to stand at stud in this coming season.

Following Russian Camelot’s second placed finish to Mugatoo in the All Star Mile on Saturdat the colt was found to have a slight tear in his near-fore tendon and connections have opted to make the decision this morning to retire the horse immediately.

“Today is an extremely disappointing day for us all, however we will be forever indebted to such a magnificent horse who gave us all the most exhilarating experience that we will never forget” managing owner John Wheeler said.

The son of European sire Camelot finishes his career with two Group One wins in the SA Derby and the Underwood Stakes as well has G1 placings in the Makybe Diva Stakes, Caulfield Stakes and the Cox Plate.

“From the moment we bought him at the Tattersalls Sale in Newmarket, he has been a standout colt. Although we only saw him race 11 times, he made a significant impact on the Australian racing scene winning the SA Derby and at WFA in the Underwood Stakes as a three-year-old” trainer Danny O’Brien said.

Connections are yet to announce where Russian Camelot will stand at stud with multiple options being discussed with the ownership group.

Russian Camelot won four times and place on five occasions from eleven starts and amassed $2.34m in earnings.

The news comes minutes after Golden Slipper winner Farnan was retired to stand at stud following niggling injuries which had set-back his Autumn campaign.
