Famous Name: A 20th stakes success and now retired to stud
The astounding Famous Name (1-5 favourite) secured his 20th stakes-race success in the Trigo Stakes at Leopardstown.
Despite giving weight away to all of his rivals, Dermot Weld's seven-year-old had little difficulty in winning this Listed prize for a third time.
Chrysanthemum and Barack cut out the early running in the mile-and-a-quarter assignment, but Famous Name was never too far away.
Pat Smullen's partner only really got serious as the field swept into the straight and hammered his nearest pursuer, Demurely, by three and a half lengths.
Famous Name was, incredulously, winning his 13th race from 17 starts at Leopardstown.
He has now been retired and will stand at Irish National Stud., their chief executive John Osborne said: "Famous Name is retired today after a glorious career.
"He has had 38 starts and has 21 wins, 20 in stakes company, to his name. We are looking forward to producing horses just like him.
"In six seasons he has only run outside stakes company once, and that was when he won his maiden by seven lengths. We are very excited to have him and you couldn't find a racehorse like him.
"They've always loved him at Rosewell and he has been a great horse to train - he is uncomplicated and sound. He has had six seasons competing at the highest level and always gave him best."
