Globetrotting stayer Mount Athos, who ran in two Melbourne Cups, has been retired.

Mount Athos ran fifth in the 2012 Melbourne Cup and third a year later when trained by Luca Cumani.

The eight-year-old began life with the late John Hills and was subsequently bought by Dr Marwan Koukash.

He was trained in Ireland for a spell by David Wachman before being sent to Cumani.

Moved to Marco Botti for the start of last season, he ran well in Dubai for his new handler before winning the Aston Park Stakes almost a year ago.

Ongoing injuries have since prevented him making it back to the track.

“Mount Athos is a favourite with all the staff. He will be missed and we wish him well in his retirement,” Botti said on his website.
