Kameko And Siskin Retired After Breeders Cup Disappointment

This years English 2000 Guineas winner KAMEKO and Irish 2000 Guineas winner SISKIN have officially been retired.

Kameko burst on to the scene back in July of last year with an impressive maiden victory on debut at Sandown. He followed that up with back to back second placed finishes before absolutely bolting up in the rescheduled Group 1 Futurity Stakes at Newcastle at odds of 11/2 so the win certainly wasn't expected.

Then on his first run in 2020, that's when his career highlight came. Sent off at 10/1 in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, the Qatar Racing Colt swooped around the outside to just manage to get up ahead of Wichita and the well fancied Pinatubo.

However, he failed to hit the heights he promised with those back to back Group 1 victories with just one win coming from his final four career runs with that victory been in the Shadwell Joel Stakes. He now retires to stand at Tweenhills, the home of Qatar Racing.

Siskin meanwhile has been one of the stars across the Irish Sea in the past two years.

After bolting up in a maiden at Naas in May of 2019, he had one of the finest starts to a career we've seen in a while with five straight victories which included wins in the Group 2 Gain Railway Stakes and double Group 1 success in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes and then in the Irish 2000 Guineas as a three year old.

He like Kameko failed to impress after those runs of wins with lacklustre performances at Goodwood, Longchamp and then at Keeneland this weekend. Unlike Kameko though, Siskin will now head abroad to stand at stud with Japan his most likely destination.

Two colts who promised so much but unfortunately never really lived up to the hype they justified earlier in the year.
