Harry Angel trained by Clive Cox is set to become the highest rated sprinter to retire to stud in Britain for more than 30 years when he becomes a part of Dalham Stud in 2019.
The Godolphin trained four year old has had an illustrious Group 1 and 2 winning career picking up the July Cup Stakes and the 32Red Sprint Cup as a three year for his Group 1s and before them picking up the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes and Sandy Lane Stakes. His only Group 2 winner as a four year old and in fact his only win of the season was in the Duke Of York Stakes.
The son of Dark Angel's retirement comes just days after his arguably best run of the season on Champions day when he finished second to the Richard Fahey trained Sands Of Mali in the Qipco British Champions Stakes.

“He’ll be a very easy stallion for breeders to use, thanks to his outcross pedigree.”
Fellow Godolphin sprinting colt Jungle Cat will retire to Kildangan Stud for the new breeding season in 2019 with both horses fees not yet been released but looking at other horses like themselves that have gone into being a stud it won't be cheap.
The globe-trotting Jungle Cat won two Group 1s in Dubai and Australia this year with James Doyle on board for both of the rides in the care of Charlie Appleby.

“To be a nose behind Muhaarar at two and yet be at his very best in his 31st start as a six-year-old just goes to show what an utterly admirable racehorse he was.”
