No More 2012 Melbourne Spring Carnival for Mosheen – Retired

Star mare Mosheen will take no further place in the 2012 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival with connections retiring her after she suffered a fractured leg during the Tristarc Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday.


A fractured leg in Saturday's Tristarc Stakes has led to the retirement of Mosheen

The four-time Group 1 winner fractured the tibia of her near-side hind leg when she finished sixth to Streama in a race she started as favourite.

She will be retired to stud in Japan where she will be served by Deep Impact at part-owner Katsumi Yoshida’s Shadai Stallion Station in northern Japan.

In an 18-start career, Mosheen recorded eight wins and five place-finishes, amassing a prize pool of more than $2.7 million.

After showing promise as a two-year-old with a runner-up finish in the Golden Slipper, Mosheen proved herself a star as a three-year-old when winning four Group 1 races.

Included in her victories were the Crown Oaks, Australian Guineas, Randwick Guineas and Vinery Stud Stakes.

In remarkable performances, she overcame both wide barriers and wet tracks to beat the boys in both the Australian Guineas and Randwick Guineas.

Mosheen’s autumn success had her ripe for a tilt at the Cox Plate this spring but those plans were quashed after she struggled following a pre-spring throat operation.

Despite ending her career on a sour note Mosheen still tasted some success this spring, producing a dominant performance to win the Group 2 Blazer Stakes.

Her retirement will be a welcome relief to a number of mares who are being aimed at Saturday week’s Myer Classic.
