Track exit for Bull

America's Horse of the Year for 1994, Holy Bull, has his left front leg in a steel cast and has been retired from racing after being pulled up in a race at Gulfstream Park, Florida, on Saturday.

"It's over," owner-trainer Jimmy Croll said when asked about the grey colt's career. Croll's horse has ligament damage apparently sustained while battling for the lead with Cigar, who went on to win the nine-furlong race.

Holy Bull was making his second start of the year and was bidding for his seventh straight victory. He went off at odds of 1-5 against eight rivals. The defeat was his third in 12 starts.
