O'Brien's Leading Light is retired
20 Nov 2014 17:05
Aidan O'Brien's St Leger and Ascot Gold Cup winner Leading Light has been retired and will join Coolmore's National Hunt stallion roster for 2015.
-
The four-year-old was last seen running at Ascot on Champions Day where he trailed home seventh behind Forgotten Rules but it later transpired he suffered a serious injury in an incident with the eventual winner.
-
O'Brien had hoped that his racing days were not over but unfortunately his career now lies away from the track.
-
Leading Light beat the Investec Oaks winner Talent when winning the 2013 Ladbrokes St Leger at Doncaster and came out on top in a thrilling three-way battle with Estimate (who was subsequently disqualified) and Missunited in the Gold Cup earlier this year.
-
"He's a gorgeous, big horse and we're delighted to be getting him," said Coolmore's Albert Sherwood on www.coolmore.com.
