Leading 1000 Guineas hope Commissioning (GB) has been retired after suffering a career-ending setback, according to John and Thady Gosden. She had been as short as 6-1 with some firms.
John Gosden said, “Unfortunately Commissioning sustained an injury to her left hind fetlock. Despite being given time to heal, she has sadly not recovered sufficiently and the decision has been made to retire her from racing.”
The unbeaten daughter of Kingman (GB) signed off last season with an impressive victory in the G1 Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket. All three of her wins came at Newmarket as Abdulla Al-Khalifa and Isa Salman’s filly also landed the G2 Rockfel S. as well as an impressive debut victory on the July course.
Thady Gosden added, “Commissioning has left our stables today to go to Highclere Stud. She retires an undefeated Group 1 and Group 2 winner. She showed extraordinary speed and displayed a very determined and competitive mental attitude in her training and racing.”
