Discreetly Mine retired

King's Bishop S. (G1) hero DISCREETLY MINE (Mineshaft) has been retired and will begin a new career at stud, the Blood-Horse reported on Thursday. Stallion plans have not yet been revealed.

The bay sophomore was training up to a run in the November 6 Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1) at Churchill Downs, but was withdrawn from consideration after trainer Todd Pletcher found his charge had injured his left stifle in early October. Connections were hopeful Discreetly Mine could return to training over the winter and pursue a four-year-old campaign, but following a recent assessment the decision was made to retire him.

"The deciding factor (to retire him) was that the diagnosis was not what we we're hoping for," Anna Hall, racing manager for owner/breeder E. Paul Robsham Stables, told Blood-Horse. "He was re-evaluated at the farm and the decision was made not to continue his career."

Discreetly Mine was a contender on the Triple Crown Trail early in the season, capturing the Risen Star S. (G2) at Fair Grounds and finishing a close fourth in the Louisiana Derby (G2). He was no factor in the Kentucky Derby (G1), though, crossing under the wire in 13th.
