Lahudood and Honey Ryder, the first two finishers from Saturday's $2 million Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf, have been retired from racing.

Lahudood, who is the leading contender for female turf champion with her victories in the Breeders' Cup and Flower Bowl Invitational, finished her career with 4 wins, 5 seconds and 1 third from 12 starts for career earnings of $1,695,370. She is owned by Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum, who races under the name Shadwell Stable. She was trained in North America by Kiaran McLaughlin after making her first seven starts in Europe for trainer John Hammond.

Honey Ryder, who finished three-quarters of a length behind Lahudood in the Breeders' Cup, ended her career with 13 wins, 4 seconds and 8 thirds from 33 career starts for Glencrest Farm and trainer Todd Pletcher. Honey Ryder won 11 stakes, including the Grade 1 Flower Bowl in 2006 and the Grade 1 E.P. Taylor in 2005. She won two runnings of the Grade 2 Sheepshead Bay, the Grade 3 Orchid Handicap and the listed Robert G. Dick Memorial Handicap. Her other stakes wins included the Grade 3 Glens Falls, the Grade 3 The Very One, and the listed Princess Mora.

* Timarwa, who finished sixth in the Filly and Mare Turf, has also been retired.
