Retirement On The Cards For Injured More Joyous

More Joyous could be retired following her disappointing effort in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes last month.

The More Than Ready mare placed seventh in the $400,000 race in a performance that initiated the massive fall out between Gai Waterhouse and owner John Singleton.

This resulted in a well-publicized stewards investigation and the removal of all Singleton’s horses from Waterhouse’s stables.

More Joyous

More Joyous could be headed for the breeding barn and a date with Frankel after her All Aged Stakes injury. Picture by Steve Hart.

While the country was focused on the colourful battle between two of our best known figures, More Joyous was the forgotten victim.

The six-year-old mare, who at her career best was seemingly unbeatable, was left unable to turn her head due to an unknown injury sustained either during the race or in the days beforehand.

Now Singleton is considering retirement for the classy mare and a possible rendezvous with Frankel in England.

The mare has won an unbelievable 21 of 33 race starts and has earned more than $4.5 million in prize money during her career.

Singleton’s racing manager, Duncan Grimley, confirmed that the team was considering all their options.

“There is a possibility she could be retired,” said Singleton.

“Frankel is still on the agenda.”

Whether it is this year or next, More Joyous appears to have locked in a date with Frankel for her first attempt at stud.

More Joyous’ progeny, especially with the world’s highest rated racehorse as the sire, would be sure to attract a great deal of attention at bloodstock auctions.

For now, however, all that is for certain is that Singleton and Waterhouse’s long standing friendship and business partnership has come to an end.

“Two horses have been gone to Bjorn Baker, a Zabeel filly to Clarry Conners, Anthony Cummings has a More Than Ready colt while Tony McEvoy will get Most Joyful, the sister to More Joyous,” Grimley said.

“There are six or seven yearlings that have yet to be divvied up.”
