MGSW & G1SP Enbihaar (Ire) (Redoute's Choice {Aus}– Chanterelle {Fr}, by Trempolino) has been retired due to injury, Shadwell's Racing Manager Angus Gold announced on Tuesday. The John Gosden trainee and 2019 English Highweighted Older Mare at 14 furlongs and above was pointing for this weekend's G1 Qatar Prix de Royallieu.

“Enbihaar will miss the Royallieu as she is currently at Shadwell Stud,” said Gold of the €500,000 Arqana August yearling. “She had a minor injury, and as a result has been retired–very sadly. She's been an absolute star, and I wish we had a few more like her–with her enthusiasm and ability.

“It was sad not to win a Group One. But she did very well to win what she did, and she was a real torch-bearer for us for the last few years. She was beautifully trained–I must say that. It's very sad, but it was fantastic to keep her in training this year to win a couple more group races. She's given us a lot of fun, and obviously we'll give her a proper chance at stud.”

A winner of the G2 Lancashire Oaks, G2 Lillie Langtry S. and Doncaster's G2 Park Hill S. as a sophomore, the Haras du Mezeray-bred ran third in the 2019 Prix de Royallieu. A rare returning 4-year-old in these colours, she duplicated a victory in the Lillie Langtry S. and, in her final start, won York's G2 Lonsdale Cup on Aug. 21. She retires with a mark of 12-7-1-2 and $636,973 in earnings.

Her dam is a half-sister to  Group 1 winner Amonita (GB) (Anabaa), and a full to MGSW Cox Orange (Trempolino), herself the dam of G1 1000 Guineas third Vista Bella (GB) (Diktat {GB}). Besides Enbhihaar, Chanterelle has also thrown GSP Silent Attack (GB) (Dream Ahead) and SP King Bolete (Ire) (Cape Cross {Ire}).
