Fierement | JRA

Four-time Group 1 winner Fierement (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}-Lune d'Or {Fr}, by Green Tune) has been retired due to a suspensory ligament injury in his right foreleg. The bay sustained the injury when running third in the Dec. 27 G1 Arima Kinen Grand Prix. Named the 2020 Japanese Champion Older Horse, the 5-year-old will stand at Breeders Stallion Station this year.

Bred by Northern Racing and raced by Sunday Racing, the son of G1 Premio Lydia Tesio winner Lune d'Oro won three of his four starts at three including the G1 Kikuka Sho (Japanese St. Leger). Kept in training in 2019, he added his first edition of the G1 Tenno Sho (Spring) in five starts. Never off the board in his final season, Fierement narrowly won his second Tenno Sho (Spring) last May before a second in the G1 Tenno Sho (Autumn) and the aforementioned third in the Arima Kinen. He retires with a mark of 12-5-3-2 and earnings of $6,521,654.

He is a half-brother to the dam of MGSW and MG1SP Inns of Court (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}). This is the extended family of French Champion Miler Luth Enchantee (Fr) (Be My Guest).
