Kinda similar to the death of Sebring in Australia just a few weeks ago at the age of 13. Sometimes these things happen, but it’s still heartbreaking and sad.

Rotten news about Pioneerof the Nile. The only consolation is that he has several very promising sons at stud in American Pharoah, Cairo Prince, Midnight Storm and Classic Empire.
And Social Inclusion, who I hope makes noise in regional markets (Florida and Pennsylvania).

Heartbreaking about Pioneer. Seems just yesterday he was a promising 3-year-old on the Derby trail. They think he died of a ruptured aorta. That can happen to any human and animal. It happened to my beloved little Kitty just before Christmas 2017...in fact, only two days after the devastating San Luis Rey Downs fire. Aortic dissection usually happens rapidly, without warning, and usually kills too fast for medical intervention. I don't have words adequate enough to express how sorry I am about Pioneer's death.
Ah, I didn’t realize that’s what it was. The show jumper Hickstead died from that, too, at age 15 I think it was. One minute he was walking to the exit from the ring after completing a round, next minute he was down and in death throes.

I just remembered that Pope said her first hunch/thought was to send Songbird to Pioneerof the Nile before they decided on Arrogate. Now I am extra sad that she didn't go with him the first time :cry:

I thought he had collapsed right after his last jump. I remember Eric Lamaze describing how even in that moment the horse looked back at him as if to make sure he was ok, then no more. From what the vets said his aorta must've ruptured while he was jumping - shows what kind of horse he was that he completed the course in spite of literally bleeding out internally.

Although I should mention that aortic aneurysms can have genetic predispositions. I've got an elevated risk for abdominal aortic aneurysms according to DNA profiling and I later found out my Great grandfather had had one. He didn't die from it because miraculously it was found before it ruptured during some other kind of procedure/exam.

I feel like sporthorse breeders in the US or (more likely) Europe would have appreciated him, at a lower price point of course. He did sire the NSA Champion Novice horse last year (Iranistan, the jumps stakes winner you mentioned) and his conformation is superb. I feel like Americain is going on a similar path and I wish Thoroughbred stallion owners would go outside the box a little more with these non-commercial horses.
Unfortunately sporthorse breeders in the U.S. aren't breeding to Thoroughbreds.
It's not that simple. If you have a registered Hanoverian, for instance, and you want to register the foal, the stallion has to be approved by their registry. Stallions can earn that via a performance test/evaluation, or may earn it in the show ring (the thoroughbred stallion, Coconut Grove, for instance). There are also some rules around at least 50% Hanoverian blood, so if you have an approved Han/XX cross mare, you are limited in your options. Mares are also inspected/graded and can also go through a performance test for further evaluation/grading.

The Boodhorse article states that preliminary autopsy result suggests it was a heart attack
that caused his death

Not news really but Spendthrift updated their website, and I love it. Nice layout. I love looking at the headshots on the stallion overview page.

I like the new website too but I have to say, I didn't realize Spendthrift stood so many stallions.

Finale... Oakton Farm Stallions is not e tension of any sort of Richard Haisfield, Stonewall or Prestige . The stallions are under lease from several owners. Haisfield is a stain on the industry but the stallions nor Oakton should be punished or gossiped about ..you can’t deny the bloodlines .. As for Finale . Yes abviously I “managed “ to pay for as I recieved his JC papers ! Really people have nothing better to do than gossip or speculate and try to tarnish an up and coming business .. I work my ass off 16 -18 hours a day to make this a success to read this and Ray Paulicks garbage. My reputation and references are stellar . Pick up the phone and just ask if you want to know what’s going on ! 352 615 8400

Tale of Verve Retired, to Enter Stud in Kentucky

https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing ... n-kentucky

~ I was legitimately just thinking of him. Fipke is standing him at his own farm.
Tale of Verve has moved to Darby Dan Farm.

I didn't realize this guy had such a nice pedigree. He's certainly not the worst prospect retired in recent months.
