What luck is this.
« on: March 22, 2015, 06:56:41 am »
The day after her son won a Grade 2 and became RC Bee's first homebred stakes winner, Sonatina died hours after foaling an overdue Mr. Prospective filly for Easter Valley Estate. She was a stakes winner for us and the first broodmare to reach silver rank with one foal racing.  She leaves behind three handsome sons and a daughter.

Never lost a broodmare before, especially one like her. I'm feeling a bit lost  :(

I'm so sorry for your loss.

I've noticed that the broodies i have lost tend to be the ones that turned out to be really nice. It kind of sucks.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Here's hoping her foals do her proud.

So sorry for your loss. :( I'm glad you got a filly from her, hopefully she can carry on the line (and maybe the colts, too).

Thank you, guys. I wish I could say the filly is mine but Sonatina was leased to Easter Valley Estate. Just my luck, though I hope the filly does well for them.

Sorry about your loss. At least she has several foals to continue her legacy.
