LONDON, Oct 11 (Reuters) - English Derby winner Australia has been retired to stud after a hoof injury called time on the colt s career, it was announced on Saturday.
The three-year-old, who also won this year s Irish Derby and the Juddmonte Stakes at York, had been expected to run at British Champions day at Ascot next Saturday but his owners took the surprise decision to bring the curtain down on his career.
He developed a problem in a right hind hoof. The decision was made yesterday to retire him, a representative from the Coolmore stud farm told Channel Four television.
Australia won five of his eight races, earning over two million pounds (.22 million) in prize money, and was described by Aidan O Brien, who has trained five Derby winners, as the best horse he had ever worked with.
