Group One winning mare Krone has been the biggest name to be retired from the Gollan stable this week after another poor showing at Newcastle on Monday led to the decision.
The Six year old Gollan runner had been retired previously and was set for a stint in the breeding barn before her racing career was resurrected and she ended up missing the breeding season for Rosemont Stud.
Krone jumped from barrier two in the rearranged Emancipation Stakes on Monday and after initially traveling well he dropped out of the race after failing to let down in the final stages and finished 7th of 9.
Winning only at Listed level prior to making the move north to Tony Gollan’s stable, Krone went on win the Group 1 Coolmore Classic, Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes and the $1m Magic Millions Fillies and Mares.
While the future is clear for Krone and the breeding barn awaits a decision is yet to be made about stablemate Jonker who finished a disappointing 11th in the William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday Night.
The six-year-old knocked up badly after being forced to do considerable work early.
As the first Group 1-winning stallion of Spirit Of Boom, a stud career beckons for Jonker when connections make the decision to retire him.
Gollan has also been forced to retire speedster Miami Fleiss on Monday following an continuing fetlock issue.
The black-type winner will now be prepared for life as a broodmare following a nine-start, five-win career on the racetrack.
