There are good horses on that list, but I guess that the loss of 2012 3yo Champion Filly Questing hits home. I hope she had some nice foals.
Did any of the racing sites ever mention the deaths of those horses? I just checked Bloodhorse, and there doesn't seem to be any mention of Questing's passing. You'd think a champion would get at least a brief obit. :oops: :(

Wow, I am also surprised not even a mention for Composure as she was one I followed back in the day and has been a good producer as well. Warbling has a 2018 filly by Chrome.

Found death reports in JC for:

Bit of Whimsy (2019)
Composure (2019)
Questing (GB) (2019)
Warbling (2018)
Oh man :cry: I saw both Questing and Warbling during my trip to KY in April 2018.

South Korea's second Triple Crown winner Power Blade (2016) passed away on July 14, 2019. The Korea Racing Live blog has not posted about it yet, but I assume his passing has to do with the injury that forced his retirement in July of 2018, a fractured sesamoid which he underwent surgery for. The stud book does not list him as having covered any mares this spring.

The son of Menifee, out of Cheonmachong by Lost Mountain, swept all three legs of his native country's Triple Crown in 2016. Other career highlights include winning the 2017 Busan Owners Cup, placing in group company in the 2017 Dubai Racing Carnival, finished second in the 2017 Korea Cup Sprint, and finished out 2017 with a win in the Grand Prix Stakes. He was second in the Busan Ilbo Cup in his only start in 2018. He had been in training to defend his Busan Owners' Cup title when he was injured.

Wunder, the "strawberry roan" G3SW German thoroughbred, passed away in January due to colic.

Roaring Lion was euthanized following another attack of colic. RIP, big guy.

Oh NO!!! :shock:
Aw frack. I really hoped he was getting through this. What a loss, both for his connections and the breed. :cry:
Such a beautiful, talented son of Kitten's Joy.

Potential as a stallion--
