Makfi last raced in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (Eng-I) Sept. 25,
finishing fifth. He was retired with four wins from six starts and
earnings of $867,460.
“His owners wanted to see him race again, but he has been on the go
nonstop for more than a year, and it’s been a long season competing in
top-class races,” Redvers said. “He had his first race this year in
April before he won the Guineas.
