If they keep showing the horse, he will go lame and then they have detracted from his value. He won 3 golds at WEG and broke a bunch of records, now is a great time to retire him to stud.
I think they wont retire him untill after 2012. They will want an olympic medal to his name, preferably a gold one!
I think he will probably retire to stud immediately after the 2012 olympics.
