Robert Landry retires after 2,045 winners

Canada: Leading jockey Robert Landry, who has ridden a total of 2,045 winners in a 29-year career, has announced his retirement.

According to the Blood-Horse, the Toronto-based 48-year-old is to become racing manager for Chiefswood Stable, owners of Niigon, aboard whom Landry won the 2004 Queen's Plate, Canada's premier Classic at Woodbine.

Landry, who rode his first winner in 1981, retires after 17,656 career mounts that have earned prize-money of nearly $70 million.

He was named Canada's outstanding jockey in the Sovereign Awards in 1993 and 1994.

He rode 167 stakes winners altogether, the vast majority of them in his native Canada.
