Multiple Grade One-winning chaser Un De Sceaux left the yard of Willie Mullins for the final time on Monday.
After having ran at five Cheltenham Festivals, the 12 year old was retired in February just gone. Ligament issues were discovered in preparation for the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
He finished outside of the first two just once in 21 completed runs over fences — the majority of which were in Grade One company — and ended his career having won 23 of 34 races under rules and more than £1.5 million in prize-money.
Mullins tweeted: “Un De Sceaux is leaving us today for his new life in France. A horse with a remarkable attitude and a will to win like no other, he will be really missed around the yard.”
