Twilight Son has been retired to stand at Cheveley Park
Trained by Henry Candy, the four-year-old won the Haydock Sprint Cup last season and the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot this June.
His last two runs, in the July Cup and on Champions Day, came on unsuitable ground.
Cheveley Park bought into Twilight Son before he won the Haydock showpiece last year.
"He was a very good horse on his day," said Candy.
"He was by Kyllachy, who I trained, and I would very much love to train some of his offspring.
"I used to think he was a better horse when the race perhaps didn't go his way and he had to get out of trouble.
"His last race at Ascot obviously didn't go to plan, he got very upset in the stalls when the horse next to him went berserk and got withdrawn.
"His race was over before it began really."
