Farnan has been retired after suffering a training setback and will stand at Kia Ora Stud

A training setback has prompted connections of Group One winner Farnan to pull up stumps on his racing career.

Golden Slipper winner Farnan has been retired after suffering a training setback and will stand at Kia Ora Stud this spring.

Trainers Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott were hoping the colt would resume in the Group One Galaxy this Saturday ahead of a possible overseas campaign but Bott said they had run out of time to get him ready for the autumn.

“Niggling problems have interrupted our progress towards his big autumn targets, which were the Group One Galaxy and T J Smith, with a possible tilt at a Royal Ascot campaign,” Bott said.

“Unfortunately, we have now run out of time.

“Farnan’s record as a two-year-old speaks for itself and his work at home and at the trials this preparation show that he has retained all of his superior speed as a three-year-old.

“Gai and I are certain he will be a huge success at stud and we look forward to supporting his progeny in due course.”

Last season’s champion two-year-old, Farnan was beaten only once during his juvenile year and was a dominant winner of the Golden Slipper.

Feet issues restricted his spring campaign to just two appearances and he retires with an overall record of five wins from eight starts and more than $2.5 million in stakes.

Kia Ora Stud will set his service fee after the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.

The news comes at the same time dual G1 winner Russian Camelot will be retired to stand at stud in this coming season.
