Jockey Bryony Frost has promised Black Corton, the horse that launched her career, all the grass he can eat and plenty of gallops across Dartmoor after the decision to retire him to the stables of her trainer dad Jimmy near Buckfastleigh.
The ten-year-old's owners, including TV presenter Jeremy Kyle, and trainer Paul Nicholls called it time after Bryony pulled him up near the end of his latest race at Kempton Park at the weekend.
Black Corton not only won 14 times and nearly £400,000, but he was Frost's first pro ride in 2017 and her first winner.
The pair went on to seven more victories in 25 races together, prompting Bryony to say: "He was a fairytale - I owe him so much.
"He's safe and sound, and he's coming home to Devon to fill his belly with as much grass as he can and go gallivanting round the moor.
"There's already a booking list for people to come and give him pats and carrots!"
