Lael Stable homebred One Master (GB) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}-Enticing {Ire}, by Pivotal {GB}), the three-time G1 Prix de la Foret winner, has been retired from racing and will take up residence at New England Stud, Racing Post reports.

The 6-year-old mare, trained by William Haggas for Roy and Gretchen Jackson, only got going in the late summer of her 3-year-old campaign but quickly made up for lost time, breaking her maiden at second asking before winning the Listed October S. at Ascot. She picked up a first pattern win the following August in the G3 Fairy Bridge S. at Tipperary before upsetting the Foret at 33-1, and she would never be that long a shot again. Freshened after running at the Breeders' Cup and the Hong Kong International meeting in 2018, One Master went winless but was not beaten far in three Group 1 tries last year before defending her Foret title. Kept in training this year at six with the goal of a third Foret, One Master won the G3 Oak Tree S. at Glorious Goodwood prior to finishing second in the G2 City of York S. and G2 Park S., after which she bested Godolphin's multiple Group 1-winning colt Earthlight (Ire) (Shamardal) in the latest edition of the Foret over the heavy ground. Beaten a half-length when third in the G1 British Champions Sprint S., One Master was scratched from the Breeders' Cup Mile earlier this month after tying up at Keeneland.

Haggas told Racing Post, “One Master has been an absolute star for us, but she has been retired to New England Stud. She was kept in training specifically to win the Foret for a third time and it came off, which seldom happens. She owes us nothing and hopefully the second chapter of her career will be as successful as the first.”
