Robert Bruce, the winner of the 2018 Arlington Million Stakes, has been retired from racing and will return to his native Chile to begin his stallion career, Daily Racing Form reports.
Trainer Chad Brown told DRF's David Grening the 5-year-old son of Fast Company came out of his most recent effort, a fourth-place effort in this year's Arlington Million, with a soft tissue injury in a pastern, facilitating his retirement.
Robert Bruce ends his on-track career with eight wins in 14 career starts for earnings of $1,321,957.
Racing as a homebred for Haras Convento Viejo, Robert Bruce was unbeaten in six Chilean starts, including four wins in Group 1 competition. He made his U.S. debut in May 2018 with a victory in the Grade 3 Fort Marcy Stakes, and won the Arlington Million two starts later. Since then, the horse's highlights include runner-up efforts in the G1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Stakes and Manhattan Stakes.
Robert Bruce is out of the Orpen mare Lady Pelusa, who won the G1 Chilean Oaks.
