Breeders' Cup third Zaftig retired

THE Grade 1-winning filly and Breeders' Cup third Zaftig has been retired after tearing ligament in her hind leg in a pieceof work. She was being prepared for a tilt at the Grade 1 Cigar Mile Handicap.

The daughter of Gone West won two graded races in her career -  the Grade 3 Nassau County Stakes on her third start and the Grade 1 Acorn Stakes.

A foot injury kept her off the track until October when she returned to finish third behind Ventura in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint. She is to be shipped to Kentucky after a period of recuperation.
