Too Darn Hot Retired To Stud After Career Ending Injury

John Gosden's Champion two year old of last season Too Darn Hot has been retired to stud after picking up a career ending injury when going on to win the Group 1 Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.

Just five days after the three year old landed his third Group 1 victory of his career it was revealed in a shock to the racing world that it would be the last time he would be seen on a racecourse.

The colt picked up a hairline fracture of a hind cannon bone which would of definitely ruled him out of the rest of the season but the decision to retire him must have been planned fo the end of the season anyway with horses previously recovering fro injuries similar to this.

The Andrew Lloyd Webber owned horse won six out of his nine career starts, picking up three Group 1 wins, one s a two year old and two as a three year old and in all of his nine races he never finished outside the top three.

The colt was taken to Newmarket Equine Hospital to undergo surgery and when fit and ready will be sent to stud.

(Credit Racing Post) Simon Marsh, racing and bloodstock manager to owners Andrew and Madeleine Lloyd Webber, said: "Too Darn Hot has undergone emergency surgery to his right-hind cannon after x-rays revealed a hairline fracture.

"I'm glad to say he has come safely through surgery. The injury is not life threatening and he should make a full recovery. 

"His future now lies at Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket where he will recuperate and stand at stud for the 2020 season. 

 "The Lloyd Webbers and I are very sad we won't see this champion on the racecourse again. He has given us all so much excitement in winning three Group 1 races over the last 12 months, culminating in his brilliant victory last week in the Qatar Sussex Stakes."

Too Darn Hot was compared to the likes of Frankel during his two-year-old campaign, where he won on all four starts, including the first black type win of his career in the Darley Dewhurst Stakes.

As a three year old he was not as impressive to start with, being raced frequently in Group 1 and 2 events and never finishing his races off like we know he can.

But when sent over to France, back at seven furlongs, he landed his first Group 1 of the season in the Prix Jean Prat and after that doubled it up in the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.
