INJURY RETIRES 3 TIME G1 WINNER

Hope’s have been dashed of a racing return for the Kiwi bred Bostonian with long term injury forcing the three time Australian Group One winner to retire to the paddock permanently after spending most of last season on the sidelines

The Bostonian is retired in New Zealand

The impressive son of Jimmy Choux has not raced since a seventh placed finish in the Winx Stakes  back in August of 2020, after a fetlock injury stopped any further competitive action.

Trainer Tony Pike had been hopeful of a racing return for The Bostonian this Spring however those hopes have now all but vanished. 

“We had him in pre-training for a couple of months over winters and had a regroup with vets and the owners and came to the decision,” Pike said.

“His X-rays weren't as good as we expected and the decision was made in the best interests of the horse to retire him.”

The Bostonian started his career in impressive style in his native New Zealand but on transition to racing in Australia he really began to go through the gears emphatically. 

To kick off his first trip across the Tasman he won the Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes and Group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas. He would then return 12 months later to claim a Group 1 double in the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

Paired with Queensland based jockey in 2019 The Bostonian went on to win the Doomben 10,000 as well as the Group 1 Kingsford Smith Cup.


The Bostonian was able to capture the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes in March of the following year to complete a hat trick of Group 1 victories on Australian turf. 

“He just flew over there,” Pike said.

“It‘s a shame as he is still lightly-raced and could have been a great sprinter-miler for a few years yet.

“He’s got a phenomenal record there.

The Bostonian will now retire to the farm of owner David Archer.
