Melbourne Cup Placegetter Lucas Cranach Retired

Anthony Freedman-trained import Lucas Cranach has been retired following veterinary advice and is set to begin a career at stud.

Lucas Cranach

Lucas Cranach has been retired due to a bone condition.

Connections were informed by vets that the German-bred stayer has a degenerative bone condition that is not going to improve.

The Mamool entire had just a brief career in Australia despite arriving in 2011, with injury preventing him from showing his true potential.

He ran a bold fifth on Australian debut in the 2011 Caulfield Cup before backing up that performance to take third-place honours in the Melbourne Cup.

Multiple injury problems saw him start just one more time under Freedman which was a stunning win in the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes in February last year.

He was the early favourite for both last year’s Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup but injury stopped him from lining up.

The news was revealed by part-owner Jamie Lovett on twitter who is a co-director at Australian Bloodstock.

“Unfortunately for connections we have decided to retire Lucas Cranach this morning on the advice of vet. Very disappointing for all concerned,” Lovett said.

The six-year-old is now likely to begin a career at stud with his racing career ending at six wins from 12 starts.

Highlights included a Group 2 win in Germany and the third-place finish in Australia’s most prestigious race.
