I'll be betting on encosta or elusive quality. Anyone know any other classy non Danehill sons?

Here's an article from Racenet

Gold Edition retired from racing
Brad Waters
Saturday, 2 February 2008

Superstar mare Gold Edition was retired after suffering an injury in Saturday’s Group I Coolmore Lightning Stakes at Flemington.

The mare was found to be lame in the near foreleg after her fourth-placed finish behind Apache Cat in the 1000m dash.

Gold Edition led the field in the early and middle stages, but was under pressure passing the clocktower and faded over the concluding stages to finish fourth.

Trainer Ron Maund and owner Kevin O’Brien immediately made the decision to retire the mare from racing.

Maund said he could see the mare was in trouble at the 300 metre mark.

"As she passed the clocktower,I could see there was something wrong with her, it was like she was waving goodbye to the racetrack," Maund said.

Maund attributed the injury to the flying mare’s high-octane racing style.

"At the pace she goes there’s always the danger of something like this happening, she’s feeling the pressure of the weight on her legs, I could see by her action that she’s not relishing the high speed any more," he said.

Maund added that he was thankful that the mare had not broken down in the race and the injury was relatively minor.

"I’m grateful she’s not broken down but we wouldn’t want to risk her, she’s just got lots of wear and tear and things are starting to ache for her," Maund said.

Gold Edition will be retired to owner Kevin O’Brien’s property, Lauriston Lodge, where a decision will be made as to which stallion will serve the brilliant mare.

Maund was full of praise for the four-year-old mare.

"She’s simply been wonderful to us, and I can say there will never be another Gold Edition on the racetrack," he said.

Gold Edition started in 37 races, winning 16 of them and amassed over $3 million in prizemoney

Don't you just love these stories!!!

In The Sunday Mail today (can't find the story on web page), Tony Meany writes, presumably from an interview with Ron Maund:

Maund said he had no regrets about starting Gold Edition in the race and that she had not left the track lame.  :D

"She's been changing her action in work for some time and I've been a bit concerned she might have been favouring a leg," Maund said. "She looked after herself and I'm just glad she got through the race OK."

Gold Edition had her four legs iced and Maund said he would follow the advice of veterinary surgeons about whether to give her any pain killers.

"She can't go to a Danehill line horse because her sire Lion Hunter was by Danehill. Just about every sire in the country at the moment has got Danehill bloodlines and she'll probably go to a horse like Encosta De Lago.

"I'll probably never get another Gold Edition but you never know."



Well, was she lame or was she sound?  It just depends on who you read or talk to, apparently.  It was also reported in The Courier-Mail yesterday that Maund said "she was not race fit".

I'm sure if there was a dollar to be gained he would.  :p 

As long as she had at least a two-day spell first.  :D

Interesting to note that GE has a steward's embargo on her, due to a vet certificate.

Hmmm, so that's the latest information, BB.

What's the reason, do you know?  Haven't listened to radio or read any web pages today yet.
