Barbara Livingson shared a photo of Sunday Silence I had never seen before -- with Arthur Hancock before he shipped to Japan. The photo was taken by Tony Leonard:

That's devastating news. :cry:
Gold Allure(JPN) was one of the most influential sons of Sunday Silence(USA) and by far the best successor on the dirt.

And... today... his sons won determinedly both in the G1 February Stakes 1800m dirt and in the Kenturky Derby trial Hyacinth Stakes!!!
It did look like both Gold Dream(JPN) and Epicharis(JPN) knew they had to win to pray for their sire.
Hope they will ship to the US!!!!!

That was certainly a Gold Allure day.

Gold Allure is an important stallion. Beautifully bred and a grand-looking horse. Has the news of his passing been confirmed? That one Facebook page does not make it clear.

The Paulick article about Epicharis' win mentions Gold Allure, so I have to assume it's official. :(

Epicharis was bred in Japan by Masatsugu Kamada and is by Gold Allure, the recently deceased son of Sunday Silence. He is owned by U Carrot Farm and trained by Kiyoshi Hagiwara, and was ridden to victory by Christophe Lemaire.

It was confirmed by other Japanese Twitter posts as well.

And more from the Japan Times:

Sunday’s victory also turned out to be a fitting tribute to Gold Dream’s sire Gold Allure, who unexpectedly died of heart failure a day earlier.

Is it strange that we have lost three stallions...Fame and Glory, Lucky Pulpit, Gold Allure...to heart failure within the last week?

I don't know if we're just more aware of it due to the internet or if this is unusual, but either way, it's very sad.

Well, like any other *cough* cardiovascular activity, I suppose breeding can be strenuous and it's not unheard of to lose stallions in/around the process of covering mares. "Older" stallions, at least, those in their teens (which really doesn't seem that old to me, but what do I know)... and when you've had the winter off and breeding season starts up again, a cluster of deaths might seem unusual but essentially be a result of suddenly increased activity.
