Darley stallion Holy Bull pensioned

Darley has pensioned 1994 Horse of the Year and Hall of Famer Holy Bull, sire of 2005 Kentucky Derby winner Giacomo and 2000 juvenile champion Macho Uno, from stud duty.

Sheikh Mohammed al-Maktoum’s organization announced the retirement early Sunday morning.

The Great Above horse is 21 and was retired due to the infirmities of old age and waning fertility, Darley’s Charlie Boden said. Holy Bull stood at Darley’s Jonabell Farm in Lexington, where he bred 17 mares in 2012. Eleven, so far, are reported in foal.
