Home Affairs winning the Gr.1 Coolmore Stud Stake at Flemington

Home Affairs retires to Coolmore

"Home Affairs has been retired from racing and will come straight to Coolmore from quarantine following his return to Australia," said Coolmore’s principal Tom Magnier. "He wasn’t one hundred per cent sound after the race on Saturday which may explain his disappointing effort. It was a great shame he didn’t give his true running as the form he showed in both of his Group 1 wins would have entitled him to win. Nature Strip was further proof if any was needed of the calibre of the Australian sprinters vis-a-vis the rest of the world."

"Home Affairs is a fantastic looking individual and was a joy to train," said Chris Waller. "He had everything we look for in a racehorse."

"Home Affairs has already attracted a full book of high-quality mares so we’re delighted with the support he has received from Australia’s top breeders," said Coolmore’s Tom Moore.

An $875,000 yearling purchase Home Affairs is the best son of I Am Invincible from the stallion-producing family of Encosta de Lago and Flying Spur as well as leading first crop sire Russian Revolution.
