The sensational career of Burn One Down has come to an end as connections have decided to retire the four-time Group-winning champ.
The son of Buck Fever and Fancy Jaffa loved his time at The Meadows, racing at the Broadmeadows circuit on 19 occasions for two wins over the 600 metres (PB of 33.93, just .02 off Dyna Double One’s track record) and 12 wins over the staying journey, where he recorded a best time of 42.23 when winning this year’s Group 1 Zoom Top.
He finished with four career Group wins, with three of those at The Meadows, including the Zoom Top, Stayers Topgun, and TopCat Video Cup.
His three track records – set at Cranbourne (40.73), Geelong (38.72) and Sale (36.66) – still stand, and sit nicely along with his enviable record of 34 wins and 13 placings from 55 starts, amassing $507,559 in prizemoney.
The black champ will now head back to owners Dave and Danielle Pringle where he will begin life as a stud dog.
