That makes sense. Though it may also be in their best interest to give him a shot at another win before retiring him. Oh well, womp womp, c'est la vie, etc. Was nice while it lasted.Tessablue wrote:I read somewhere that they wanted to give him time to come down after his last race- I guess on the precedent of Chrome who apparently got a late start or something this year.Macaroni wrote:I haven't read up too much on what Juddmonte has said re: Arrogate's retirement, but is there any reason they choose now to retire him rather than retiring him after say, the Pegasus?
