Hard-knocking Group 1 winner The Grey Gatsby has been retired and will stand the 2018 breeding season at Haras du Petit Tellier in Normandy, France.
The Racing Post reports that the 6-year-old son of Mastercraftsman won four times and finished in the money a total of 13 times in his 28 career starts. The Grey Gatsby earned £2.7 million during his four-year career.
As a 3-year-old, The Grey Gatsby won the G1 Prix du Jockey-Club and the Irish Champion Stakes, beating Epsom Derby hero Australia in the latter.
According to the Post, The Grey Gatsby will stand for €7,000 at Petit Tellier; the stud is in the process of syndicating the horse.
Stud owner Patrick Chedeville said, “The Grey Gatsby was a wonderful racehorse with good conformation and temperament; just a very well-balanced individual.”
“He will be a valuable new stallion in France from the Danehill line, which is not seen in France as much as in the rest of Europe, especially in Ireland.”
