South African Champ National Colour Retired
South Africa's multiple Gr1-winning 6YO sprinting mare & 2006 joint Horse-Of-The-Year National Colour (National Assembly-Rainbow Cake, by Mr Eats) has been retired & will be offered for sale in Europe later this year. National Colour recorded 8 wins from 13 starts: her highlights included victories in each of 2006's South African Gr1 Mercury Sprint (1200m) at Clairwood), Gr1 Fillies' Sprint (1200m) at Scottsville & Gr1 Computaform Sprint (1000m) at Turffontein, before an injury sidelined her for over 12 months; she retuned this year in Europe & finished runner-up in August's UK Gr1 Nunthorpe Stakes (5 furlongs) at Newmarket.
