Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente is likely to be retired to stud after suffering a tendon injury.

The horse gave trainer Gai Waterhouse her first Melbourne Cup win last year and added the Australian Cup to his record last month.

One of the star galloper’s part-owners, Henderson Racing, confirmed the injury on Twitter.

“#Fiorente – small tendon tear. Most likely be retired but ownership group still discussing. No Stud deals tabled yet or discussed yet,” the Henderson Racing tweet said.

Fiorente arrived in Australia in the spring of 2012 as a Group Two winner in England and finished second to Green Moon in that year’s Melbourne Cup at his first southern hemisphere start.

He was placed in the All Aged Stakes in a cameo appearance last autumn before returning in the spring to win the Group Two Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes and Australian racing’s biggest race, the Melbourne Cup.

His autumn campaign started in brilliant fashion with victory in the Peter Young Stakes and Australian Cup in Melbourne before he headed to Sydney where he was unplaced in the Ranvet Stakes and third in Saturday’s Group One BMW (2400m) at Rosehill.

The six-year-old son of Monsun has won six of his 20 starts and amassed more than $6.2 million prize money.
