Western Aristocrat retired to stud in India

WESTERN ARISTOCRAT, sent by Newmarket trainer Jeremy Noseda to win last year's Grade 1 Jamaica Handicap at Belmont Park, has been retired to stand at Capricorn Stud in India from next year.

The four-year-old colt is by Mr Greeley, whose son Rebuttal has made waves in India with his first crop conceived at Hazara Stud having yielded several Group race winners.

Bred by Grapestock LLC out of the winning Kris S mare Aristocratic Lady, Western Aristocrat won a Newmarket maiden on his only start at two.

On his three-year-old debut last year he won a Haydock handicap and then ran third in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot and Thoroughbred Stakes at Goodwood.

His finest hour came with a length defeat of Grade 1 winner Brilliant Speed in the Jamaica Handicap last October. He also finished third in the following month's Hollywood Derby.

Western Aristocrat was last seen being pulled up in the Godolphin Mile at Meydan in March.

He will stand at Capricorn Stud alongside Whatsthescript.
