This is devastating news. RIP Nightfight, whose breeding legacy will surely be felt for years to come. I'm glad he already has 3 sons braced to carry on the torch.

So sorry to see this, Holly. :( Nightfight's legacy will continue, and I hope his sons (and daughters!) live up to his standard.

That's just awful. I'm so sorry! He was way too young to be taken.
I hope my boy, Fight The Twilight, can do him justice in the breeding shed someday...

A devastating loss for everyone in the game.  Condolences from our farm to yours.  So glad I got my best mare in with him last year.  Hoping this pairing results in a fitting tribute to the great man.

Thanks Carole.  You have some very pretty babies by him. I know you will have luck with them.

Thanks Patricia.  Mood Ring was always one that caught my eye. I'm glad they got a date, too. The baby will be so special.
