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.
