Derby winner Pour Moi has been retired after suffering a serious leg injury.

The three-year-old colt, trained by Andre Fabre, was retired on Saturday (27 August) after being injured in training on Friday (26 August) morning.

A statement from Coolmore Stud read: “Epsom Derby winner Pour Moi suffered a severe overreach to his near fore fetlock during exercise at Chantilly on Friday morning. He will not race again and will retire to Coolmore for the 2012 breeding season.”

The Montjeu colt won three from five starts and provided Fabre with his first Derby win.

Fabre said: “I’m sure he will be a super sire. He’s a beautiful, well-bred colt with a fantastic action and a change of pace.”
