Time's up for Taghrooda

Oaks and King George heroine Taghrooda was hailed "an absolute star" after connections confirmed she has run her last race.

The daughter of Sea The Stars was a stunning winner of the Epsom Classic in early June, but it was her victory against her elders and the males at Ascot that confirmed John Gosden's charge as an exceptional filly.

Her unbeaten record went up in smoke when she suffered a shock defeat in the Yorkshire Oaks, but she once again showed her true colours when finishing third from a wide draw in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp.
