Aust Horse-Of-Year Typhoon Tracy Retired
Trainer Peter Moody announced reigning Australian Horse-Of-The-Year & 6-time Gr1-winning 5YO mare Typhoon Tracy (Red Ransom-Tracy's Element, by Last Tycoon) has been retired following last weekend's victory in the Gr1 Sportingbet C.F.Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield in Melbourne (to take that race for the 2nd successive year). Moody noted Typhoon Tracy (who joined racing icons Vo Rogue, Manikato & Lord as the only horses to win the Orr on multiple occasions) "gave her absolute all in that race & is still fatigued 72 hours after the run. We could have freshened her up for a tilt at the Brisbane winter carnival, but she's achieved great things already so we've decided to retire her. She's been amazing to me & I'll be forever grateful for the success she gave me & her owners." Overall Typhoon Tracy recorded 11 wins (also including 2010's Gr1 Inglis Queen Of The Turf Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill & Gr1 Futurity Stakes over 1600m at Caulfield, plus 2009's Gr1 Myer Classic over 1600m at Flemington, Gr1 Coolmore Classic over 1500m at Rosehill, Gr2 Tristarc Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield, Gr3 Schweppervescence Trophy over 1400m at Flemington & Listed Kevin Hayes Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield) & 5 placings (in last month's Gr2 Australia Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley, plus 2010's Gr1 Myer Classic over 1600m at Flemington & Gr2 Dato' Tan Chin Nam Stakes over 1600m at Moonee Valley, as well as 2009's Gr2 Makybe Diva Stakes over 1600m at Flemington & Gr2 Liston Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield) from 20 starts for $2,438,600 earnings.
