Horse Racing News | Winning at stud- Retiring Rupert?

WINNING AT STUD – RETIRING RUPERT?

After surgery to remove a bone chip in the foreleg late last week, news of Winning Rupert’s future has come to light.

The 20 owners of the son of boom sire Written Tycoon have today been deliberating on the colt’s racing future after being offered a lucrative stud deal.

The figure offered and the stud offering it is not known at this early stage. However trainer Bjorn Baker has made the following comments [to RACING.COM] in regard to the pending retirement:

"From a training point of view, if he is retired it would be gutting as he is the fastest horse I've ever put a saddle on and I truly believe he could have gone to the next level in the spring."

"But we'll just see what comes with it."

The details that are known about the arrangement is that Winning Rupert would be retired to the major Australian stud immediately in order to prepare for this years’ spring breeding season.

This would weigh heavily from a racing point of view as the talented colt was intended to be racing for group 1 glory as early as this Brisbane racing carnival providing recovery from the surgery all goes well.

As it stands Winning Rupert has amassed $579,500 in prize money having won 5 of 6 starts (3 at listed level or above).

As the news still rolls in, it seems as though twitter have some mixed mail:
