Australian Star Retired

Russian Camelot has been seen on the racetrack for the final time after suffering a tear in his near-fore tendon following last Saturday's second placing in The All-Star Mile.

Connections announced the decision on Thursday via a press release, with the stallion to be retired to stud duties this coming season.

"It's a shame his career ends prematurely, as I felt his best racing was ahead of him up in Sydney this autumn and to next spring and beyond, however, I have no doubt he will have a significant impact on our industry for years to come through his stud career," trainer Danny O'Brien said in the statement.

"From the moment we bought him at the Tattersalls Sale in Newmarket, he has been a standout colt. Although we only saw him race 11 times, he made significant impact on the Australian racing scene winning a Derby and at weight-for-age in the spring, as a NH three-year-old.

"He is a horse that just turned up in any weather and under any conditions, gave his all and never let anyone down. He was just an outstanding racehorse."
