Turf Stars Alpha Centauri, Saxon Warrior Retired Due To Injuries

Promising turf talents Alpha Centauri and Saxon Warrior have both been retired following defeats in their respective Group 1 efforts on Saturday, reports racingpost.com. Alpha Centauri suffered a chip in her right front fetlock joint, while Saxon Warrior was found to have a lesion in his flexor tendon.

“I’ve had an amazing summer with her,” trainer Jessica Harrington said of Alpha Centauri. “She gave me my first Classic winner, my first Royal Ascot winner, my first French winner – she’s done an awful lot of firsts for me. I can’t thank the Niarchos family enough. Now we’ve got to try and find another.”

“He was a very talented racehorse,” said trainer Aidan O’Brien of Saxon Warrior. “It’s a big pity that we’ve had to retire him. He was a brilliant horse and put up his his best performance when winning the 2,000 Guineas.”
