Victoire Pisa planned for one more start, then retirement

According to Masakazu Takahashi’s story for the Racing Post, 2011 Dubai World Cup (G1) winner Victoire Pisa is expected to have one more start, potentially the Japan Cup or the Arima Kinen, before retirement.  Read the full story HERE.  Victoire Pisa has yet to race since the win in the $10 million event, suffering minor injuries in training before the Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup in Hong Kong and then again just a few weeks ago preparing for the Arc.  Stud plans have not been announced.

  1. I know connection’s very much wanted to take Victoire Pisa back to France this season, and have him run in the G2 Prix Foy as a prep for another shot at the Arc De Triomphe. But a last minute injury has already kept him out of the Prix Foy and will also keep him out of the Arc as well. Honestly, with Victoire Pisa injured, I’m not sure I’d put the horse through all of the necessary rehab that he’ll likely have to endure now. Just to let him race once more in the Japan Cup or the Arima Kinen? There’d certainly be no disgrace in being sent off to stand stud having finished your career having won the 2010 G1 Arima Kinen, the 2011 G2 Nakayama Kinen, and the 2011 G1 Dubai World Cup as the final 3 races of a fine career!!
