Champion Mare Typhoon Tracy Retired from Racing

Peter Moody has shocked the Australian racing industry today with his announcement that his champion mare Typhoon Tracy has been retired.

Champion mare Typhoon Tracy has been retired from racing after the CF Orr Stakes

Typhoon Tracy posted her sixth Group 1 victory on Saturday with a win at the 2011 C.F. Orr Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse.

The five-year-old mare has ended her career on a high note, after breaking a ten month drought with Saturday’s victory.

Peter Moody claims that he and Typhoon Tracy’s owner, Jon Hutchins, had made the decision to retire their superstar horse after her performance in Saturday’s C.F. Orr Stakes.

“She gave her absolute all in that race and is still fatigued 72 hours after the run,” Moody said.

“We could have freshened her up for a tilt at the Brisbane winter carnival, but she’s achieved great things already so we’ve decided to retire her”

Typhoon Tracey is set to become a very profitable brood mare, with a career win percentage of 55%.

She won 11 of her 20 career starts and accrued total prize earnings of almost $2.5 million.

“She’s been amazing to me and I’ll be forever grateful for the success she gave me and her owners,” Moody said.

The trainer was quick to silence claims today that his mare had been forced into retirement.

“She didn’t suffer a career-ending injury,” Moody said.

Unfortunately for horseracing enthusiasts, this immediate retirement of Typhoon Tracey means we will not get to see what was sure to be an exciting showdown between Typhoon Tracy and More Joyous in the 2011 Futurity Stakes (1400m) on February 26, 2011.

Typhoon Tracy was also nominated for the 2011 Newmarket Handicap on March 12.
