Danon Chantilly has been retired from racing. The 2010 NHK Mile Cup winner suffered tendon injury after finishing fourth in the Sankei Osaka Hai on April 3rd. That second injury made him retire. The 4-year-old colt will stand at Shadai Stallion Station.
Grand Prix Boss, winner of the 2011 NHK Mile Cup, is scheduled to leave Japan for England on May 27 to run in the June 4 St. James Palace Stakes at Ascot.
