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.
