Top-class racehorse Kingman has been retired to stud near Newmarket, it has been confirmed.

The John Gosden-trained colt was being trained for the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot on Qipco Champions Day but he has yet to recover from a throat infection.

Connections still hoped the three-year-old would make the showpiece race, but time has now been called on a decorated career.

Kingman, who won seven out of eight races in a 14-month career, is now set to join legendary unbeaten racehorse Frankel at Banstead Manor Stud for the 2015 stud season, confirmed Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Khalid Abdullah.

Frankel entertained his first mare at Banstead Manor Stud on Valentine’s Day last year after retiring in October 2012.

In a statement released to Press Association Sport, Mr Grimthorpe said: “Kingman is to be retired to Banstead Manor Stud for the 2015 stud season.

“The throat infection will still need on going treatment which will rule out the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and also the Breeders Cup.

“The stud fee of the horse that has electrified European racing in 2014 will be announced by the stud when appropriate.”

The son of Invincible Spirit met with his only defeat when beaten by Night Of Thunder in the QIPCO 2000 Guineas at Newmarket but comprehensively took revenge on that rival in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot. His other Group One victories came in the Irish 2000 Guineas, Sussex Stakes and Prix Jacque Le Marois.
