Training legend Criquette Head-Maarek to retire next month
"For 40 years I've been lucky to have fantastic horses throughout, and I've enjoyed every minute of it, but I want a little more time for myself."

One of the great post-war training careers in European racing will come to an end on February 1 when Criquette Head-Maarek saddles her final runners.

The trainer of dual Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner Treve, and some 60 Group 1 winners in France, revealed the news on Sunday.

Head-Maarek, 69, who won her first Arc with Three Troikas in 1979, just a year after sending out her first Pattern-race winner, said: "I'm going to retire. A lot of horses have gone from my yard already and all of my owners know.

"I was going to announce it at the end of the month, but a lot of people know now and so there's nothing to hide. I shall have runners on January 26, and again on February 1, but then that is it."
