British political, legal, financial racecourse and horseracing government dismay as Wigmore Hall picture is published on Mail website. Dark age British government imposters brutalise trainers to incude the horses and their handler riders ongoing getting more dangerous every single day over the last six decades and still to this very day, they appear oblivious to the cruel bloodhorse illiterate havoc they have and are causing. asking for trouble, inviting trouble as they continue to take the highly skilled work of true horsemen for granted.
Global horseracing is estimated to be 90 per cent more dangerous than it ever needs to be due to bloodhorse illiterate government regulation.

Kingman retired
Gosden tribute to ‘most exciting colt I have ever trained’

“JOHN GOSDEN hailed Kingman as “a long way the most exciting colt I have ever trained” after the outstanding miler was retired yesterday, denying the sport one more chance to see the brilliant racehorse in action on British Champions Day at Ascot. With the colt still undergoing treatment for a throat infection that had put his participation in the Queen Elizabeth 11 Stakes in jeopardy, owner Khalid Abdullah decided to call a halt to a career that in 2014 has yielded four Group 1 victories. Kingman will retire to the owner’s Banstead Manor Stud where he will stand alongside the Supreme Juddmonte champion Frankel.
“Kingman won the Irish 2,000 Guineas, St James’s Palace Stakes, Sussex Stakes and Prix Jacques le Marois and suffered the only defeat of an eight-race career in the British 2,000 Guineas when second behind Night of Thunder in a race in which the field split into two groups. One on the stands rail, the other on the far rail. (in other words a mess-up)
“Gosden said last night: “We were all looking forward to running him at Ascot so, yes, it is frustrating, but from the point of view of what he has achieved it’s not at all frustrating. He was a long way the most exciting colt I have ever trained.
“Royal Heroine won the Breeder’s Cup Mile and broke American records, but this horse was just in another league, a horse with quite the most extraordinary acceleration and a horse who captured the imagination. So in my opinion I was lucky to have had him to train. “
“Kingman won the Irish 2,000 Guineas by five lengths, avenging his Newmarket defeat with an emphatic victory over Night Of Thunder at Royal Ascot and then mastering leading older miler Toronado in the Sussex Stakes with a devastating burst of acceleration.
“The fact he had such a high cruising speed, a couple of turbo-charged engines  and the acceleration he had, to witness it on the gallops, let alone at the races, was extraordinary.” Gosden (pic)  added, he could do that pretty well on the bridle.
“He has a great mind, was a strong colt and had tons of ability. He’s just missed the last dance, that’s all, but he’s had six runs this year and five wins. Ascot, the Sussex Stakes and the Jacques le Marois were performances out of the top drawer.
“He could change from cruising along in second gear to straight to the after-burners and eighth gear. He had some turn of foot.
“What he did in the Sussex no horse was meant to be able to do. He picked up Toronado like that was an example of his extraordinary speed. He was an exciting horse to have trained.
“There was an outside chance Kingman could have been considered for the Breeders’ Cup in the event of missing the Queen Elizabeth 11 Stakes, but it would have been too much of a rush to get him back to peak and then ship him to California.
“Abdullah’s racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe said: “He’s quite a big horse and he’s been on the easy list since we announced it. The throat problem was 75 per cent cleared up but the 25 per cent was going to take that much longer. To have any chance of getting to Ascot he needed to be cantering today. If you lose another week it takes longer to get back and then it might be two weeks.
“The Prince was incredibly pleased with his career and Kingman had shown us what he had got. Whoever said you have got to leave them wanting more was correct.
“For me, he lit up European racing this year, winning in France, England and Ireland at the highest level. To see him win those four Group 1 races on the trot and show that fantastic acceleration so few other horses can show, he was a spectacular horse.
“The two races that caught the imagination were his imperious performance in the St James’s Palace, when he suddenly took off and swept by them, and then to do what he did in the Sussex Stakes under those circumstances was exceptional.
“Very few horses could have done what he did off a slow pace. To accelerate past Toronado after he had got two or three lengths on Kingman, was truly exceptional.
“The British 2,000 Guineas is all history. We have all run the race 100 times. It is one of those things that happens in racing. The main thing was he came out and proved himself the horse we knew him to be. “
