I am happy he retires but bummed because I had hoped he would run as a 4 year old.

 I find it sad that too many horses are retired so young, that have  so much left to give on the track.

It is the name of the game these days and i don't see that changing anytime soon.

It sounds like WinStar and Don Alberto had a plan when they bought him and they are sticking to that plan. Yes it sucks that we do not have many 4 year olds move on that were top 3 year olds, but they also do not want to lose the horse because he becomes injured. It;s a game of odds and sometimes you have to retire.

   I remember when  American Pharoah was retired.  I was ambivalent because I

was so afraid every time he put his hoof on the track,  he could be  injured, and yet I wanted to see him race as a four year old..  So I  can understand to a certain degree why these horses are retired sometimes   prematurely.

Here's one than ran at 4 and only won 2 times as a 4 year old , traveled to Ascot and failed to fire. But he will go stand at Darley Japan as War Fronts first Grade 1 turf winner from the US to stand in Japan. I hope he does well there.
