SEA The Stars, one of the greatest racehorses of all time, has been retired.

The exceptional colt, a six-time Group One winner, had been in the mix for the Breeders' Cup Classic but connections have decided to call time on his career.

Trainer John Oxx had intimated after his latest win in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe that retirement was likely for the son of Cape Cross, and it was confirmed in a statement this afternoon.
