Retirement beckons for Morning Assembly
on 23 March 2018
Pat Fahy has retired Morning Assembly who now will return to his owners

MORNING Assembly has been retired by Pat Fahy.

A Grade 1-winning novice hurdler and a Grade 2 winner over fences, his last run under Rules saw him finish eighth in Rule The World's Grand National.

Injury forced him to miss the following season and he had been running in point-to-points this year with the aim of running at Cheltenham, but as that did not materialise he has now been retired.

"The plan was the Foxhunters and that didn't happen. We tried and it didn't work out, that's the way the game goes," Fahy told

"He (Morning Assembly) is going back to his owners (Steven Parkin) . He has gotten loose now twice and we are afraid something might happen to him.

"He is his (owner's) favourite horse and he wants him to have a good retirement, the retirement he deserves. He will be heading back to Leeds to his owner's place, it is smashing there, I'd like to be going there myself!

"He has given us the best days ever. Even the win this year would be up among the best days we have had. There are no plans for him aside from days spent out in the paddock."
