Recent Group winner Clothilde has been retired to stud after suffering an injury.

The John Hawkes trained mare would have been running in Saturday's Feltex Carpets SA Oaks at Morphettville had she not gone amiss in the Australasian Oaks recently.

Clothilde, a beautifully bred daughter of the champion sire Danehill, scored her best win on April 20 when she dashed away from subsequent Group One winner Tully Thunder in the Group Three Lakewood Stud Stakes at Morphettville.

Hawkes' Adelaide foreman David Pannell said the mare, who is from the former above average racemare Seika, strained a tendon in the recent Oaks and would be retired.

"She would have to spend a fair while in the paddock, then the same again bringing her back," Pannell said.

"She's already a stakes winner so it was decided to look after her and send her off to stud," he added.
