Co-trainer Murray Baker, who prepared the horse throughout his career with training partner Andrew Forsman, is disappointed to see the entire’s career finish on that note.

"He was a wonderful horse and it’s a shame to see him go out like this,” he said.

"He’s the best performed son of Iffraaj in the Southern Hemisphere with his three Group Ones wins and a pair of Group Two victories as well. At his peak he was such a powerful galloper and a real competitor in everything he did.”
