GODOLPHIN GROUP ONE WINNER RETIRED

Training Powerhouse Godolphin have decided to retire another one of there veteran racers with the decision being made to retire one of their most accomplished race horses having had 43 career starts across seven years of racing

Trekking set to retire for Godolphin

Group One winner and Godolphin veteran Trekking is being retired after running fifth in a Group 3 contest in Adelaide last month.

“We are in the age of The Everest but for an animal with his courage to have to walk away from the track having won almost $6 million in prizemoney and having done it competitively for so long speaks volumes for the horse,” trainer James Cummings said.

Trekking, a son of the Irish horse Street Cry, first won back on debut in 2016 when Godolphin’s Australian training operations were under the control of former trainer John O’Shea. 

The bay gelding went on to win his maiden Group One title when winning the Stradbroke Handicap and setting a new record for the 1400m at Eagle Farm. He would go on to then claim another Group One title in the Goodwood Handicap at Morphettville the following year. 

In 2019, Trekking also contested The Everest for the first of three times, finishing third behind Yes Yes Yes. A year later he was fourth to Classique Legend before his 2021 swansong in the world’s richest turf race resulted in a sixth placing behind Nature Strip.

Trekking is one of the few racehorses in Australia to contested Group One races in all of Australia’s five main racing jurisdictions - Victoria, WA, Queensland, NSW and SA.

He raced at Group 1 level on 15 occasions for a return of two wins, two seconds and two thirds. Three of those placings came at The Valley when second in both the 2020 Moir and Manikato Stakes with a third in the 2021 Moir Stakes.

Trekking retires with after a seven year career that saw him win 10 from 43 starts and amassing close to $6m in prize money.
