Golden Shaheen winner Kinsale King has been retired due to the detection of a small injury. According to trainer Carl O'Callaghan, he is still happy, healthy, and sound. He will remain with his current connections as he begins his new life as a "great pet and great pony."

  • Mary Z. · I've seen these two together at Hollywood Park. Best friends for sure. The trainer truly loves this horse. · 501 days ago
  • goblin · This is a success story in many ways, and an example of how our racing geldings can be treated respectfully. Kinsale King (and Lava Man) can be themselves and continue to contribute to the sport. I hope KK and Mr. O'Callaghan have lots of fun together in their new phase! · 501 days ago

  • goblin · Kinsale King is the subject of a book that is soon to be published, and the proceeds will benefit a foundation called Wish Upon A Teen, for children with autism spectrum disorder. In the article, O'Callaghan says that if King doesn't come back to being a graded stakes horse, he will not be pushed. They will try to find easy spots for him; never will he be put into claiming races. If he can no longer run, he will be a barn pet. Great story by Amanda Duckworth of ESPN. http://espn.go.com/horse-racing/story/_/id/9109213/kinsale-king-dubai-detroit · 565 days ago
A little shout out to American Sprinter Kinsale King, and honoring his Golden Shaheen win in 2010 over the Top sprinter in the World at that time, Rocketman.
he's retired?
Bad news for anyone that was going to back Kinsale King in his bid to repeat as Golden Shaheen Stakes champion in 2011. I clicked onto Dubairacenight.com's web-site at about 8:00 A.M., and trainer Carl O'Callaghan has scratched Kinsale King out of this year's Golden Shaheen. Saying, and I quote, "his legs are all blown up. he look's like he's had an allergic reaction to something"? End quote.
I'd have to say I like Kinsale King's chances of repeating in the Golden Shaheen quite a bit more now than I did before p.p. draw. Rocket Man has been brilliant everywhere he's raced this year. This is a horse who's sprinted all over the world and never finished worse than 2nd against the world's best. But Rocket Man could possibly have a difficult time overcoming a wide draw? But I will say this much. If Rocket Man get's out on the lead, difficult for Kinsale King or anyone else in the race to catch him this time, IMO.
Kinsale King getting ready for Dubai 2011
After a fabulous 3rd place effort at Ascot in the Golden Jubilee Stakes. American sprinter, Kinsale King, had no such luck in the July Cup at Newmarket. Kinsale King's connections had instructed jockey Kieren Fallon to try and stay closer to the pace in the July Cup. Equiano and Alverta came out of the gate with a blistering pace. With Starspangledbanner right there as well. Kinsale King broke well, and stayed with the pace makers for a time. But faded badly in the last 2 furlongs of the race. On a side note. Starspangledbanner's jockey, Johnny Murtagh, was given a 6 day suspension for a maneuver he used in the race. Bringing Starspangledbanner across the field out of post position 11 all the way over to the inside rail. The six day suspension will now keep Johnny Murtagh from being able to ride in July 24th's King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot. Murtagh was likely to be the jockey for Dante Stakes and Irish Derby winning colt, Cape Blanco in the race.
  • Mike99 · Hi from Australia. I watched last night and thought Kinsale King would be the main danger along with the other Aussie Alverta, which I knew would improve. But he faded at the end, which was a bit out of character for him the way he has been going. You know they should consider bringing him down to Australia. There are a couple of nice races down the straight 6 furlong course at Flemington. Kinsale King would be suited by our tracks which are fast and flat, unlike the UK courses which can be quite testing and can explain why some horses don't back up all that well over there after a tough run. Love to see Kinsale come to Oz, I think it would be great for world racing. And my long range tip - watch for Starspangledbanner to step up to a mile real soon - I would love to see that!! · 1625 days ago
  • medlocke · Mike99, I don't think there's any question about the fact that Kinsale King is the best 6 furlong sprinter from America. I also agree with you that it was a bit out of character for Kinsale King to fade the way he did in the July Cup. His connections had told Kieren Fallon to keep Kinsale King closer to the pace in the July Cup. The early blistering pace that Equiano, Alverta, and Starspangledbanner went off at was what sunk Kinsale King. The only problem I would have with Kinsale King going "down under" to race against Australia's best is that all of those races are on turf as well. Kinsale King, without question, does his best sprinting over synthetic track surfaces. As he looked winning the Vernon O. Underwood Stakes at Hollywood Park and the Golden Shaheen at Meydan during the carnival in Dubai. · 1625 days ago
