Injuries force Wuheida retirement

Posted on by in | 0 Comments

Godolphin have confirmed that injury has forced them to retire dual Group One winner Wuheida.

The four-year-old won her maiden at Newmarket in July 2016 and added her first Group One title later that year in the Prix Marcel Boussac.

After some near misses last year, she claimed the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Del Mar and returned this year with another victory at Newmarket in the Dahlia Stakes.

All looked good but injuries have taken their toll on the Charlie Appleby-trained filly and her owners have now decided to retire her to stud.

Appleby told “It’s unfortunate, but she has a few niggling injury worries that have resurfaced in the past few days, and after discussing it with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed, we have decided to retire her.

“I am pleased she went out on a high with such an emphatic win at Newmarket.

“She was a very talented filly on the racecourse. She will go to stud, and Godolphin looks forward to seeing her progeny in due course.”
