WALLER MARE SET FOR RETIREMENT

It was announced on twitter today that Group 1 winning mare Toffee Tongue, trained by Chris Waller is set for early retirement after suffering an injury during the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival

Toffee Tongue set for retirement after injury

The breeding barn seems to be the most likely outcome for Toffee Tongue after the daughter of Tavistock failed to finish the Group 2 Q22 on Saturday with Nash Rawillier easing up the Waller runner at the 800m mark.

In the post race vets examination it was revealed the mare has dislodged filler in the off fore hoof which lead to the impromptu end to her winter racing campaign.

The Waller Racing Team posted an update on Twitter on Tuesday to confirm that Toffee Tongue was in good condition and “bright and sound in the paddock”.

In the same tweet Wallers Team also disclosed in the tweet “she’s likely to now become a mum after a terrific racing career”, a strong indication of plans to let the breeding process lead the Group 1 star.

Toffee Tongue had a great career with a win in the Group 1 Australasian Oaks as a three year old followed by a number of placings in Group 1 races against the older horses. 

Probably the most notable was her run in the Turnbull Stakes, where in a thrilling finish Toffee Tongue narrowly missed when charging late against stablemate and spring superstar Verry Elleegant.

Most recently Toffee Tongue followed Zaaki home in the Doomben Cup before her final run in the ill fated Q22 on Saturday.

After her Oaks win her other most notable victory was that of the Group 3 Sky High Stakes. With Toffee Tongue now likely to be retired to the breeding barn she takes with her a 22 start career with 2 wins that amassed over $1m in prize money.
