No 2013 Queen Elizabeth Stakes for Pierro – Retired

A dream clash between pin-up colts Pierro and It’s A Dundeel will not eventuate in Saturday’s Group 1 2013 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick.

Pierro’s connections chose to retire the star three-year-old after he boldly carried 57kg to a runner-up finish in Saturday’s Doncaster Mile.

While retirement was always on the cards, there was some speculation Pierro would back up this weekend.

But instead owner Greg Kolivos will now begin negotiations with various studs from whom interest has been high since the son of Lonhro won the two-year-old triple crown last year.

“We could have sold him ten times over in the past year,” Kolivos said.

Instead Kolivos was happy to enjoy watching the star race through his three-year-old season where he futrther cemented his star status.

Pierro raced 14 times for 11 wins and three minor placings, with Saturday’s Doncaster second his only defeat in Sydney.

For his efforts, which included five Group 1 wins, Pierro collected more than $4.5 million in prizemoney.

The sprinter-miler was lucrative as a racehorse for his owners but is expected to deliver even more off the track.

His stud value is estimated to be more than $25 million.

Major career wins include the Golden Slipper, the Canterbury Stakes and the George Ryder Stakes.

He never won a Group 1 in Melbourne but last year finished second in the Caulfield Guineas and third in the Cox Plate.

Retirement is also just around the corner for fellow star colt All Too Hard.

The half-brother to Black Caviar will have his final Australian start in the All Aged Stakes on Saturday before bowing out to a career at stud after the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot in June.

Another huge day in Sydney this Saturday and have fantastic odds! Right now is the time to join the Australian-owned bookie as they are currently offering a massive $500 bonus bet to new customers.
