Cape Cross Retired From Stud Duties
Cape Cross, the sire of champion racehorses Golden Horn, Ouija Board and Sea The Stars, has been retired from stud duties due to fertility problems, reports Racing Post. "We are apporaching the end of March and he has failed to get a mare in foal, so it has been decided that he should be retired from stallion duties," Darley's director of stallions Sam Bullard said. By Green Desert out of champion 2YO filly Park Appeal, Cape Cross has stood at Darley's Kildangan Stud in Ireland every season since his retirement in 2000. The 22YO also shuttled to New Zealand early in his career where he produced several high class performers including 7-time Gr1 winner Seachange, Hong Kong triple Gr1 winner Able One, Gaze, and Kindacross.
