Stable Star Retired

Nov 21, 2017

Griffiths Racing together with the owners and connections have reached the decision that has seen our champion and headline horse THE QUARTERBACK is to be retired.

He has bought great joy and success to his owners not too mention realising Robbie's greatest wish as a trainer providing him with his first Group One victory, the Newmarket Handicap.

"He is unique horse with somewhat of a quirky character and has always held pride of place in his box overlooking the daily ongoings in the stable," Robbie said.

"And, I might add, he has been quite the ladies man, preferring to be stabled alongside the girls!"

We are delighted to announce that after a lengthy spell The Quarterback will be gifted to his attendant Leanne who will ensure that he will have a lovely life as a show horse.

We would like to thank everyone for their support and well wishes throughout his career. The congratulatory messages after his Group One win were astonishing, likewise the support and well wishes received throughout this past week.

We look forward to keeping you all updated on his next journey. Thankfully The Quarterback is not shy of the camera, so keep your eyes out for his Facebook posts. We wish him well and thank him for being the horse he is and for the excitement he brought to us all.
