Mo Town injured, retired; Get Jets also retired
The Grade 1 winner MO TOWN suffered an injury while training last week and has been retired, trainer Tony Dutrow said Monday.

Mo Town, who won the Grade 1 Hollywood Derby last November at Del Mar, was diagnosed with a torn suspensory ligament in his left foreleg following a routine gallop over the Belmont main track.

“It’s a loss to all involved and to the sport that we didn’t get to see a proven horse race any further,” said Dutrow, whose Team D Stable owned the horse in partnership with the Coolmore connections of Susan Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith.

Mo Town, a son of Uncle Mo, won the Grade 2 Remsen on dirt in the fall of 2016. After losing his next four starts on dirt, Mo Town was moved to the turf last October winning an allowance race at Belmont. That was his springboard to success in the Hollywood Derby, a race he won by a length.

In one start this year, Mo Town finished third in the Danger’s Hour Stakes at Aqueduct. Dutrow was using that race as a steppingstone to Saturday’s Grade 1, $700,000 Man O’ War.

Mo Town retires with a record 4-1-2 from 10 starts and earnings of $519,600. He will be shipped this week to Ashford Stud in Kentucky where he will stand stud next year.

“I have to be happy at this point with what he accomplished and I have to be happy the horse is fine,” Dutrow said.

Dutrow also reported that GET JETS, his 5-year-old New York stakes winning son of Scat Daddy, has also been retired.

“I can’t get him to train,” Dutrow said. “I’m trying to find a stallion home for him.”

Like Mo Town, Get Jets won stakes on turf and dirt At 2, he won the Sleepy Hollow on dirt. Last year, Get Jets won the Ashley T. Cole and West Point on turf.

Get Jets retires with a record of 6-3-1 from 12 starts and earned $545,850.

Breeders' Cup heroine Wuheida retired after old injuries flare up
Wuheida, winner of the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf last season, has been retired following the recurrence of old injuries.

Charlie Appleby's four-year-old looked as good as ever on her seasonal return at Newmarket's Guineas meeting earlier this month when running away with the Group 2 Dahlia Stakes, but it was revealed on Monday it was her final racecourse start.

The trainer said: "It's unfortunate, but she has a few niggling injury worries that have resurfaced in the past few days, and after discussing it with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed we have decided to retire her."

Victorious in four of her eight starts, including another top-level success in the Prix Marcel Boussac as a juvenile, Wuheida will now start a career as a broodmare.

Appleby added: "I am pleased she went out on a high with such an emphatic win at Newmarket. She was a very talented filly on the racecourse. She will go to stud, and Godolphin look forward to seeing her progeny in due course."

The Modigliani painting sold for $157.2M. That’ll buy a yearling or two.
