The Autumn Sun retired

Superstar three-year-old colt The Autumn Sun has been retired by Hermitage Thoroughbreds and Arrowfield Stud on Thursday Morning

The Autumn Sun’s owners Hermitage Thoroughbreds and Arrowfield met this week to consider the options for the five-time Group 1 winner. After extensive discussions, the opportunity to return the colt to his spiritual home and fill the gap left by the death of Redoute’s Choice proved too compelling.

Arrowfield’s John Messara says, “We backed Redoute’s Choice as a sire of sires early in his career, we stand Snitzel and Not A Single Doubt, and Beneteau was also highly successful for us. That history makes the best colt by Redoute’s Choice an irresistible prospect.”

John Messara adds, “The quality of The Autumn Sun’s race record also reflects the skill and dedication of trainer Chris Waller and his team, and we’re very grateful for their care and management of him.”

A joint venture has been established between Hermitage and Arrowfield to acquire mares specifically for The Autumn Sun. These mares will be additional to those already committed by Arrowfield for his first book.
