Farhh wins Champions Stakes before being retired

Farhh ended his injury-plagued career on a high by winning the
Champions Stakes on Saturday, providing an emotional conclusion to
British Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday.

The Godolphin-trained 11-4 shot beat 2011 winner Cirrus Des
Aigles by a neck in his first race since May – and only the 10th of
his career – because of injury.

Trainer Saeed Bin Suroor confirmed after the race that Farhh
would be retired to stud and said ”he’s a great fighter – every
year he has had problems but he’s a great horse and I’m so
happy.”

Also on Britain’s richest race day, Olympic Glory won the Queen
Elizabeth II Stakes at odds of 11-2 as 2,000 Guineas winner Dawn
Approach faded to fourth.
