Kim Bailey's smart staying chaser Harry Topper has been retired after being pulled up at Ffos Las on Sunday.

The 11-year-old enjoyed his most lucrative campaign in 2013-14 when he won the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby and the Denman Chase at Newbury which provided more than half of his career earnings of over £153,000.

"Harry Topper has been a total star for the yard and was the horse who put us back on the map, but it is now time for a happy retirement," the Gloucestershire trainer told www.kimbaileyracing.com.

"Harry Topper finishes his racing life after winning eight of his 24 races, sound and well. All I can say is thank you Harry for all you have done for us.

"Jockeys who rode him won't forget him either - Sean Quinlan, David Bass, but a big thanks to Jason Maguire who really sorted Harry out.

"Now we must find a very good home for Harry Topper to enjoy the rest of his life.

"Thanks for the ride Harry, you are the most lovely horse."
