Popular renowned wet tracker Jungle Edge has been retired after a disappointing run in the Wangoom Handicap at Warrnambool.
Trainer Mick Bell said it was the right time to retire his stable star and for the popular horse to start the next stage of his career.
“We’ve always said when the time was right that he would be retired and that time is now,” Bell told Racing.com.
“He could have pushed on because he’s still very fit and well in himself and has enjoyed his racing all the way until the end and that’s what we’ve always wanted for him.
“He’s meant so much to us and we really want to thank everyone that’s followed his career and has given him so much love and support.”
Jungle Edge finishes his career with over $1,700,000 in prizemoney, winning 18 races and placing on 25 occasions from his 89 starts.
