Canadian Champion Filly Inglorious Retires

The 2011 Sovereign Award-winning 3-year-old filly and Queen's Plate winner retires.

Inglorious, the 2011 recipient of Canada's Sovereign Award for champion 3-year-old filly, has been retired.

Inglorious made her racing debut in stakes company, winning the 2010 Fanfreluche Stakes at Woodbine. The Hennessy filly followed up immediately with another stakes win in Woodbine's Ontario Lassie Stakes.

Her 3-year-old campaign added another three stakes wins. After a victory in the La Lorgnette, Inglorious became one of only five fillies to capture both the Woodbine Oaks and the Queen's Plate at Woodbine.

Winless in her seven U.S. starts, she finished second behind Kathmanblu in the 2011 Rachel Alexandra Stakes (gr. III) at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, and behind Marketing Mix in an April 2012 allowance race at Keeneland. Stateside, she also hit the board in the 2012 Bayakoa Handicap (gr. II) at Betfair Hollywood Park and in the Suwannee River Stakes (gr. IIIT) at Gulfstream Park earlier this year.

Out of the Smart Strike mare Noble Strike, Inglorious was bred by Arosa Farms in Ontario and consigned to the 2009 Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (Ontario Division) Canadian-bred yearling sale by Hill 'n' Dale Sales Agency, agent. She was purchased for $90,000 (Canadian funds) by Ciaran Dunne, agent for Donna and Vern Dubinsky's Donver Stable.

Inglorious retires with a 5-2-4 record from her 16 starts, all for trainer Josie Carroll, and earnings of $1,421,222.
