In June, Racing NSW stewards opened an investigation into an allegation that Godolphin horse Polemic had been suffering from the highly-contagious equine disease ‘Strangles’ and had not been reported to the governing body.

Plumptre said in a statement on the Godolphin website that he reflected on the gravity of the situation during his recent time away from operations and believes that now is the right time to part ways with Godolphin.

“I have been away for a short period overseas and have had time to reflect on the ongoing issue of strangles that was reported to Racing NSW stewards two months ago.” Plumptre said.

“In view of the fundamental failure to report the issue at the time, it is the best option for Godolphin if I stand down.

“The reputation and integrity of Godolphin is the most important aspect of what we do and this issue has impacted on that reputation.”

Plumptre has been instrumental in developing the Darley and Godolphin brands into their current position as a powerhouse in Australian racing and believes that the success of the operation will only continual to build through the coming years.

“I have worked with some amazing people and horses over the last sixteen years at Godolphin and I thank them for all their hard work and dedication.”

“I believe that the best years are ahead of Team Godolphin – the appointment of James Cummings ushers in a new era for the training operation and I wish His Highness Sheikh Mohammed and the whole team well for this spring and the future.”

Godolphin Australia’s Spring Carnival campaign is set to be headlined by the likes of Hartnell, Impending and rising three-year-old Kementari.
