The Quarterback Retired
Group 1 winner The Quarterback (Aus) (Street Boss) has been retired from racing. The Robbie Griffiths trained gelding had his finest hour when beating Black Heart Bart (Aus) (Blackfriars {Aus}) in the G1 Lexus Newmarket H. at Flemington last year but has been well below form in his most recent runs leading connections to call time on the 7-year-old’s racing career.

Multiple Grade 1-Placed Neolithic Retired
Neolithic, the third-place finisher in the world's two richest races this season, has been retired, co-owner Jack Wolf of Starlight Racing confirmed Dec. 9.

The 4-year-old son of Harlan's Holiday had been pointing towards a return engagement in the Jan. 27 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes (G1)—where he earned show honors behind champion Arrogate this year—but his connections opted to stop on him due to some minor physical issues. Following his efforts in the inaugural running of the Pegasus, Neolithic went on to the $10 million Dubai World Cup Sponsored by Emirates Airline (G1) in March, where he finished behind Arrogate and eventual Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) winner Gun Runner .

"We just decided he's done enough. We've started trying to find a stallion farm for him and we've had a couple of inquiries," said Wolf, whose Starlight Racing owns Neolithic in partnership with Qatar Racing. "Hopefully within the next week to 10 days, we'll get that done.

"I don't think he stands in Kentucky, but I think he'll be a standout in one of the regional markets if someone wants to give him a shot. He's got a lot of positives from his race record, his physical, being by Harlan's Holiday. I don't think we'll have any trouble placing him."
