French Guineas heroine Beauty Parlour retired
BEAUTY PARLOUR, winner of last year's French 1,000 Guineas, has been retired to take up broodmare duties.
The four-year-old filly, owned by Wildenstein Stables Limited, took her unbeaten record to four with a length success in the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches before finishing second on her last start for trainer Elie Lellouche in the Prix de Diane (French Oaks).
The daughter of Deep Impact was transferred to Sir Henry Cecil but ran two disappointing races in the care of the Newmarket trainer.
Quoted on Warren Place Stable website, Lady Cecil said: "Beauty Parlour was undoubtedly a high-class filly. Her work on the gallops in Newmarket was very impressive at times and it was a shame that she was unable to quite reproduce that on her two starts for Warren Place. We wish her well when she starts her new career as a broodmare."
