Horse racing insight that's loose on the lead

Shanghai Bobby retired

September 29th, 2013

By J.J. Hysell

Just as he was making his comeback, the 2012 2-year-old champion has suffered a setback that will end his racing career.

Coolmore announced Sunday that Shanghai Bobby was retired to due to a suspensory ligament injury he sustained while winning the Aljamin Stakes on Sept. 20. The son of Harlan’s Holiday was coming off a nearly six-month layoff in the six-and-a-half furlong race at Belmont.

Shanghai Bobby retires with a record of six wins from eight starts with one second and career earnings of $1,857,000. His notable wins include the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, the Grade 2 Hopeful and the Grade 1 Champagne during an undefeated juvenile season.

Shanghai Bobby, owned by Starlight Racing and Susan Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith, will stand at Ashford Stud in Kentucky.

“It’s very disappointing as he ran really well off the layoff and we were looking forward to going back to Santa Anita with him for the Breeders’ Cup Sprint or the Dirt Mile,” trainer Todd Pletcher said in a release. “He was a really great two-year-old, undefeated in five starts over five different distances ranging from 4½ furlongs to 1 1/16 miles. He displayed his brilliant speed in the Hopeful and Champagne and then showed tremendous courage to win the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.”

Starlight Racing co-manager Jack Wolf: “We’re disappointed as we were looking forward to him returning to top level competition following his win in the Aljamin Stakes. This horse has taken us on a great adventure, from his undefeated 2-year-old campaign and Eclipse Award, to his successful return at 3. We are proud to have owned this special horse, and we wish him the best as he begins his new career at Ashford.”
