She was only 7? How sad is that- wonder what happened.

She foaled before she died, so maybe complications from that.

Didn't her foal of 2013 die as well? Perhaps Lightning? She was bred to Union Rags for a 2014 foal, so it wouldn't have been foaling related.

Her 2013 foal did die before the reg was complete with JC, not seeing anything for 2014 yet- not sure when that has to be in by.

Per Lanes End this morning...

At Lane's End Farm we have always prided ourselves on the exceptional care given to all of the mares boarded here. It has never been our practice to report the status of any of the mares beyond their owners and the people directly involved with them.
Recently through Zenyatta.com we have become aware that fans are inquiring about the status of Tasty Temptation. Sadly we must report that she passed away in October of 2013 of an apparent heart attack. I hope that fans will accept this as closure and respect the privacy of the owner and the farm.

Nice of them to reply like that, even though they did not have to. One would think that she was perhaps carrying a foal- which makes it even sadder.

She sure did- a bit like Genuine Risk. They had a hard time getting her into foal- had a stillborn by Secretariat (said it looked just like him), and 2 live births(colts)- neither which made it to the races. He was such a nut they had to use pasture breeding(Genuine Reward).

Such a shame.
