There was cause for an early celebration 24 hours before the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle when Call To Mind, owned by Her Majesty The Queen, finished third to Stradivarius in the Mansionbet Yorkshire Cup at York.

Apparently, the cost of the average wedding is £27,161. Call To Mind earned The Queen £17,754 for his efforts on the Knavesmire and it would have been £35,475 had he won his tussle for second with Desert Skyline. He lost that battle by a neck, the pair three lengths behind the emphatic winner.

Call  To Mind then travelled to America and won the Grade 2 Belmont Gold Cup Invitiational Stakes but his career came to a premature end when he  sustained a tendon injury next time, on his tenth career start, during the Qatar Goodwood Cup.

Maureen Haggas, wife and assistant of trainer William, said: “Call To Mind has been retired. Hopefully, he will be able to be a stallion. He is a Group winner, but he suffered a very nasty tendon injury in today’s race so he won’t race again.
“He never came down and it could have been a lot worse. James [Doyle] pulled him up in plenty of time and he’s fine.
“Call To Mind is a very sensible horse and he sat quietly whilst they bandaged him up – it’s very sad as you don’t want to lose horses to racing like that.
“He is coming home, but it is obviously going to take time for the leg to heal and be comfortable for him to walk around on. Essentially, he is no danger, but he won’t race again.”

Unraced at two, Call To Mind won twice as a three-year-old – at Newbury in front of his owner the day after her 91st birthday, and then in the Listed Goodwood Revival March Stakes over 1m6f.

He is regally bred, by Galileo out of Albany Stakes winner Memory, and stamina was clearly his strong suit.
