Danleigh and Jungle Ruler Retired

Two veterans of the turf have run their last race, with connections of both multiple Group 1 winner Danleigh and popular Victorian galloper Jungle Ruler announcing their respective retirements today.

Danleigh had his final start in Saturday’s Doomben Cup, running a respectable seventh in what was his 63rd career start.

The nine-year-old Chris Waller-trained gelding won 10 times and recorded 19 minor placings, picking up more than $2.5 million in prizemoney along the way.

A son of Mujahid, Danleigh saluted four times at Group 1 level, winning the 2009 All Aged Stakes and Manikato Stakes as well as the 2010 George Ryder Stakes and the 2011 Chipping Norton Stakes.

Danleigh was a punter’s favourite, always seeming to give his all and producing some big performances. His most recent victory came as a nine-year-old last September in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes.

Meanwhile, Victorian nine-year-old Jungle Ruler is set to begin a career at stud after an incredible 115 starts.

The Peter White-trained grey had an incredible 115 starts for 20 wins and 24 minor placings.

Jungle Ruler never succeeded at stakes level but recorded 10 metropolitan wins and three minor black-type placings.

The son of Lion Hunter last raced at Wodonga on December 2 and last won at Warrnambool in May last year.

The popular veteran will begin his stallion career at Bombora Downs on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula where he will stand for a fee of $2500.

There has been a number of retirements made in the last week, with today’s pair following Group 1-winning mares Ortensia and Secret Admirer who raced for the last time on Saturday.

These two veterans won’t be racing but there is plenty of exciting betting action to get involved in at the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival this weekend.
