Quality galloper Turn Me Loose has been retired after suffering an injury during an unplaced performance in the Gr. 1 Futurity Stakes at Caulfield last month.

The multiple Group One winner finished well back in the Futurity with the knee injury found during subsequent veterinary tests conducted after the race.

Co-trainer Murray Baker, who prepared the horse throughout his career with training partner Andrew Forsman, is disappointed to see the entire's career finish on that note.

"He was a wonderful horse and it's a shame to see him go out like this," he said.

"He's the best performed son of Iffraaj in the Southern Hemisphere with his three Group Ones wins and a pair of Group Two victories as well. At his peak he was such a powerful galloper and a real competitor in everything he did."

His Australian based ownership group will now spend time deciding on a potential stud career for the 2015/16 New Zealand Champion Sprinter and Middle Distance horse who won seven of his 20 starts and close to A$1.6million.
