29/01/02 American Star Monarchos Retired
Kentucky Derby winner Monarchos has been injured and will be immediately retired to stud.

In a statement jointly released by owner John Oxley and trainer John Ward it was confirmed an injury had meant the entire had raced for the last time.

"Monarchos, winner of the 2001 Kentucky Derby and the 2001 Florida Derby (G1) has been retired due to an injury of the left front medial branch of the superficial digital flexor tendon."

"This injury was thought to be a rap received during morning exercise, but later was diagnosed after an ultrasound examination," the release said.

It was also stated that the horse's future stud plans would be announced at a later date.

The four-year-old was in training to next run in the US$500,000 Grade One Donn Handicap in early February.
