Quality mare Pop Culture will finish her racing career in Victoria and will then be sold as a broodmare.
Breeder and part- owner Russell Clarke confirmed that the Blackfriars mare will have a final campaign for Mornington trainer Rob Blacker whose stable she has been in for the last six weeks.
Following her Victorian racing she will be sent to Queensland for the national broodmare sale from May 25-29.
If the mare does not meet her sale price there Clarke said she would return to Perth probably in foal.
Pop Culture, was previously trained by Colin Webster, and had 10 wins, four seconds and one third in her 37 WA starts. She also ran fourth in a Perth Cup and earned a career total of $642,675 in prize money.
Her wins included a WA Oaks, St Leger, two Ascot Gold Cups, and a Detonator Stakes for regular rider Troy Turner who rode her in all her victories.
Clarke, and his wife, Laura, currently have three more youngsters being prepared for racing, including a full sister to Pop Culture who should be with Webster in about six weeks.
