Due to a third suspensory injury, suffered in the Olympiatravet April 26 at Aby, the veteran nine-year-old Yarrah Boko, a son of Coktail Jet-Big Blue Kitten-Pine Chip has been retired.

The game campaigner finished fourth in his last start and retired with 35 wins in 85 starts for earnings in excess of US$1.386 million. His pedigree is rich with performance tracing directly to Armbro Regina and Armbro Flight (dam of Armbro Goal) through second dam Dasooner Dabettor, she a Meadow Road from Armbro Brilliance.

Yarrah Boko has been the flagship of Norwegian racing for many seasons. Trained in France, at Grobois, during the winter months, Yarrah Boko won races at Vincennes winter meet in four straight years, an unprecedented achievement. A great racing career is over.
