The Crunch Retires

Malachi Crunch enjoying his new paddock life

Yesterday, Malachi Crunch left the Thorotek stables for the final time. After 50 starts and six wins, Archie will now have a long break in the paddock before starting his new career as a show horse.

Malachi Crunch won more races than any other single horse we have trained and he capped off his career by winning Moruya Jockey Club Horse of the Year 2018/19. The circumstances in which Archie came to our stables make him all the more special and we couldn’t be prouder of the racehorse he turned into for his owners Dan and Melissa.

Happy retirement Archie!
