Zarkava, winner of the 2008 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, has been retired to stud.

Unbeaten in seven starts, the 3-year-old filly has been retired by her owner the Aga Khan. She will be covered by his 2003 Arc winner Dalakhani next year.

The super filly, who is trained in France by Alain de Royer-Dupre, has won five Group 1 horse races including the Arc, the Prix Marcel Boussac, Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, Prix de Diane and Prix Vermeille.
