TOFANE TO BE RETIRED

It’s been a huge year for Group 1 winning Tofane but after a barn storming effort in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes trained Mike Moroney has confirmed that his champion mare won’t continue into the winter and will head to retirement

Tofane to be retired and sold

Moroney confirmed he won’t be tempted by the winter carnival and will retire the 6 year old after her gut busting performance in the All Aged Stakes.

It had already been known that Tofane would be having her last run in the Group 1 contest and will now head to the Magic Millions sale to be sold for breeding.

The decision comes off the back on an impressive final race where Tofane was caught three wide the whole trip yet was able to kick clear in the straight by two lengths. It was only a late charge from Godolphin owned Cascadian that would thwart another Group 1 win for the Moroney team.


Despite those efforts Moroney is set on her retirement plans. 

“I don’t think we should race on, we agreed to retire her and I am pretty sure we will stick with that but she tried her heart out,” he said.

She was looking to emulate the great Sunline by winning two All Aged Stakes two years apart in her final run but ultimately came up narrowly short.

“She has proven what a great mare she is,” Moroney said.

“The turn of foot she showed when Mark (Zahra) said go was amazing.

“It will be sad to see her go.

“All her Group 1 wins, she has travelled and won. She has beaten all comers basically at weight-for-age, handicaps, the lot. She has taken on the males a lot.

“It would have been fitting to go out on a winning note but that’s just the way it is.”

Tofane retires with a record of 30 starts for 8 wins and 9 placings. She has amassed a total of nearly $3.7m in prize money.
