Laurina

Grade One winner Laurina has been retired by owner Jared Sullivan after bleeding again in her disappointing run at Ascot on Saturday and the seven year old will now be sold on December 14th.

Laurina was a horse with the world at her feet with Willie Mullins landing all six of her races over hurdles, including the Grade Two Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival and her first Grade One at Fairyhouse.

On course for the Champion Hurdle in 2019 she landed her first two races before running a poor race in the Grade One event, with it being said she bled through her nose during the race and since that day she has never been the same horse.

Having been sent chasing she landed her first ever attempt over the bigger obstacles, seeing off RSA second Minella Indo, but since then had flopped over fences and hurdles with her bleeding problem coming to the forefront again.

This season she was sent to Paul Nicholls and although the 11 time champion trainer had explained she had been hard to train, they believed that her bleeding problem was behind her and she was sent in to the Grade Two Ascot Hurdle.

In the three runner event she got lit up and although travelling strongly, faded very early and again it has come back she bled through her nostrils and it was the cause of her below par run.

With everything taken into consideration Nicholls tweeted on Tuesday that they will be retiring the horse and it leaves the horse racing world never knowing how good she could have been, but it looks the right thing to do for the horses welfare.

(Credit Racing Post) Nicholls said: "It was a fairly easy decision to make after Saturday. I chatted to Jared [Sullivan, owner] over the weekend and it was the only thing to do really. She obviously had issues last season and no stone was left unturned to get her right.

"I thought she would run alright on Saturday but she bled after the race. We knew she bled quite a bit last season and she'd pulled up at Leopardstown and Sandown last season. At that point it was either going to go one way or the other."

She was beat by a total of 46 lengths on Saturday and for a horse with her credentials and potential, it is obvious that something has not been right for a long time.

"There were no excuses on Saturday because we'd tried everything to get her in good shape for the run and for her to bleed was disappointing," Nicholls added.

"She's been such a super mare for Jared and for Willie and it was the only sensible thing to do. She should make up into a nice broodmare and there should be some nice Laurina foals to look forward to."
