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.

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.”
There was a terrible many car accident in CA and a semi rammed into the back of a horse trailer and killed one horse. Wonder if that was it. And was Water Cube the swimmers horse at one time, and named after the swimming facility in Beijing?
