    QUADRUPLE Group One winner Red Hot Tooth has been retired.

    With the mare racing below her best this campaign, a decision was made to end her career after she finished towards the tail of the field in yesterday’s Maryborough Trotters’ Cup.

    In what was her 100th start, Red Hot Tooth was 130 metres from the winner, The Penny Drops.

    Although saddened to see the squaregaiter bow out on such a note, trainer Kari Males stated the decision was an easy one to make.

    “She is sound, but has always had niggles,” Males said. “The kind a chiropractor can help with, but lately she has been feeling it more.

    “Her work at home has been as good as ever, but the extra pressure of racing is getting to her.

    “We said she will tell us when she’s had a enough and that’s when we’ll retire her…well, yesterday she told us.”

    Showing plenty of promise from the beginning, Red Hot Tooth secured her first feature in the Group Two New South Wales Breeders’ Challenge Final as a three-year-old.

    Successful in the Group One Breed For Speed Gold Final the following season, Red Hot Tooth completed a smooth transition to open company.

    Competing against the best trotters in the southern hemisphere, the daughter of Yankee Paco won the Australasian Trotting Championship, The Knight Pistol and a second Breed For Speed Gold Final.

    Red Hot Tooth heads to the breeding barn with a tally of 25 wins and 31 placings for a bankroll of $525,225.

    The eight-year-old’s victories include four Group Twos and three Group Threes.

    “She has done a tremendous job,” Males said. “Without the benefit of being in a series only for mares such as the Vicbred she’s pretty much had to do it the tough way against the colts all along.

    “She’s a great mare and hopefully one day we’ll see her foals doing just as well.”
