Group 1 winner Denman to stand for A$38,500

A FEE of A$38,500 (£21,427/€25,867) has been set for the Group 1 winner Denman, who will stand at Darley Kelvinside in Australia after being officially retired from racing on Thursday by Godolphin.

The outfit had intended to run Denman in the July Cup but were forced to withdraw the son of Lonhro after running out of time to bring him to peak fitness. Consequently, Denman will shortly make the trip back to Australia in time for his initial breeding season.

Denman retires as the winner of nine of 12 starts led by the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes and a pair of Group 2 events. Out of the winning Vain mare Peach, he is a half-brother to Group 1 winner Preserve.

Henry Plumptre, Darley's managing director in Australia said in a statement: "Denman was a wonderful racehorse for Sheikh Mohammed, Darley and the racing fans here in Australia last year. He will continue the legacy of his father Lonhro who is now a leading stallion and it's wonderful to be standing him."

Retiring alongside Denman at Darley Kelvinside is the Group 1-placed Time Thief, who will stand for A$13,750 (£7,657/€9,239).

Purchased for A$2 million as a yearling, Timepiece won two of seven starts and ran second in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas. The son of Redoute's Choice is a three-quarter brother to South African champion sprinter Laisserfaire and successful young sire Foreplay.
