Stakes-Winner Marea Alta Set For Retirement
NZ Wanganui-based trainer Alexander Fieldes has announced that dual stakes-winning Group-placed 6YO Marea Alta (Montjeu-Semper Fidelis, by Grosvenor) is likely to take her place at the Ellerslie meeting on September 8 for her last race, according to theinformant.co.nz. With Marea Alta Facing impending retirement to commence a much anticipated breeding career, Fieldes noted: "When she comes into season she'll be served so that race [on September 8] might be her last, but if she didn't get in foal we might even try her next year. Horses that are capable of winning a decent race like her are hard to come by." Mating options for the mare have been short listed but not confirmed.
