Sprinter Sacre was retired with an injury, so I doubt he'll be taking anyone over any kind of jumps. If his connections thought he would heal enough to be able to safely jump again, I doubt they would have retired him. I suspect he's headed for a very easy life.

Not This Time :(

Leading 2-year-old colt Not This Time has been retired from racing after a brilliant runner-up performance in the Nov. 5 Sentient Jet Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) at Santa Anita Park with a career-ending soft tissue injury to his right front leg.
Taylor Made Stallions has acquired 50% of the son of Giant's Causeway—Miss Macy Sue, by Trippie, from owner and breeder Albaugh Family Stable, and will stand the colt at its farm near Nicholasville, Ky., for $15,000 stands and nurses.

He's earned it. Happy retirement, Sprinter Sacre!

Simon Callaghan says the soft tissue strain that came up after the Preakness just kept recurring for Firing Line, which led to retirement

What kind of interest does a horse like Firing Line get? Sure, he ran 2nd in the Derby, but so did Invisible Ink. Line of David as a sire, not really selling it. The horse was brilliant-ish (or was he, I can't remember).

We're happy to have multiple GSW Departing back home. After an impressive career of earning nearly $2M, he has officially been retired.

Loved Departing. He was a lot of fun to watch. So happy he's gone home!
