Champion New Zealand mare Imperatriz has been retired. The 5-year-old had 24 starts for 18 wins (including 10 Group 1s) and three placings.

Imperatriz had a mighty will to win and for a time during her career was considered the best sprinter in the world.

Before her retirement she was one of the top fancies for The Everest, the world’s richest turf race (worth $20 million) run at Randwick in late October.

Imperatriz has embarked on her next career as a broodmare.

“So, I couldn’t be more proud of how I’m doing this time in the year and just gaining that confidence over and over, getting myself back in front of a crowd and just doing what I do in practice.”
