Flying Ricciardo will stand at stud while recuperating from hip and hock injuries sustained when he finished fourth in his semi-final of the Ladbrokes Golden Easter Egg at Wentworth Park last Saturday night.
"He will be out of action for at least a couple of months so we have decided to obtain some straws from him and give breeders the opportunity of using him while he is not racing,'' trainer Kristy Sultana said.
"After he went down on his nose at the start of his race last week he seemed to go amiss soon after and he probably aggravated the injury when he kept chasing and finished just behind the placegetters.''
Flying Ricciardo has won 22 of 27 races and last Saturday's loss was only his second defeat in 10 WP appearances.
Lakeview Walter was clearly the most inexperienced of the 32 Ladbrokes Golden Easter Egg semi-finalists last Saturday night and was far from disgraced in finishing fourth in Wow's fastest 29.45 qualifying race.
Just two years old, Lakeview Walter was having only his 13th race after having won six of his previous dozen outings but gets a crack at a $25,000 consolation this Saturday.
