Simply Perfect retired to take up broodmare duty.
DUAL Group 1 winner Simply Perfect, last seen disappointing in the Breeders' Cup at the weekend, has been retired for broodmare duties at Coolmore Stud in County Tipperary, writes Turia Tellwright.
The Jeremy Noseda-trained daughter of Danehill won the Fillies' Mile at two and this season's Falmouth Stakes before ending her career with an "erratic" performance in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Monmouth Park.
A winner of four of her 13 starts, the three-year-old, owned by Derrick Smith, Michael Tabor and Sue Magnier, accumulated over pounds 380,000 in prize-money.
Noseda said: "She has been a top-class filly at two and three, winning a Group 1 race in both seasons. She was a pleasure to train and has been great to have around the yard.
"I was very disappointed with what happened at Monmouth Park and am still unsure as to why she took such an erratic course."
Simply Perfect's stablemate Strike The Deal fared better in the US when a close fourth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, won by Nownownow.
The two-year-old, winner of the Group 2 Richmond Stakes, is now destined for the Tattersalls December Sales.
"Considering the soft ground, I was delighted with his run in America," Noseda said. "Frankie Dettori and myself both felt that he would have gone close to winning on fast ground. He has returned in good order and will now head to the December Sales.
"Unless he makes what we feel is a reasonable figure in the ring, we would be very happy to bring him back home and campaign him as a three-year-old."
