WinStar's Top Sire Pioneerof the Nile Dies at 13
WinStar Farm stallion Pioneerof the Nile died suddenly today, the farm announced. The 13-year-old son of Empire Maker —Star of Goshen, by Lord at War, bred a mare this morning and started acting uncomfortable once he was back in his stall. He was en route to the clinic when he died.

Pioneerof the Nile was a leading sire of his generation for the past three years, including the leading sixth-crop cumulative sire in every category: grade 1 winners, grade 1 performers, graded stakes winners, black type winners, and by earnings.

More to come.

I just came back from walking my dogs when the first thing that came up on my FB feed was this awful news. RIP Pioneerof the Nile, you were a brilliant ambassador for the breed.

Pioneerof the Nile dies at 13
Pioneerof the Nile, sire of Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, died unexpectedly on Monday, WinStar Farm has announced. The son of Empire Maker was 13.

In a release, WinStar said that Pioneerof the Nile covered a mare on Monday morning, but began acting uncomfortably after he was back in his stall. He was en route to a veterinary clinic when he died.

“We are all extremely saddened by the loss of Pioneerof the Nile,” WinStar executive Elliott Walden said in the release. “He was a superior physical specimen, a Triple Crown sire, and a unique personality. All of us at WinStar are heartbroken.”

RIP Pioneerof the Nile... you were my Derby pick in 2009 and my 2nd favorite out of that crop (Musket Man!!).

At least he has a number of promising stallions in the shed to pass on the genes...
