Retirement deferred for Group One winner

Three-time Group One winner Humidor will be transferred to Chris Waller.

Originally trained in New Zealand by Johno Benner and Holly Wynyard, the rising eight-year-old gelding has also had stints with Darren Weir, Ciaron Maher and David Eustace, and most recently Lindsey Smith.

There had been talk of retirement before his last-start unplaced run in the Gr.3 Strickland Stakes (2000m) but the son of Teofilo will now travel to NSW in an attempt to reignite his career.

Humidor has a rich history during the Victorian Spring carnival, highlighted by his two placings behind star mare Winx in the Gr.1 Cox Plate (2040m).

Part-owned by his New Zealand breeders Mark and John Carter, who along with sister Rachel form Jomara Bloodstock, Humidor has won in excess of A$4 million.
