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.

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...
