Wildcat Heir was Florida's leading sire in 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2014. When Wildcat Heir's first crop raced in 2009, he set a North American record by siring 39 2-year-old winners that year.

He followed that breakout year by being North America's leading second-crop sire of 2010 by money earned. In 2014 Wildcat Heir led all Florida stallions and ranked 24th in the nation with earnings of more than $6.2 million.


Sad news. A sure loss to Florida breeders.
He was such a pretty colour when I saw him in October 2005 at the Breeders Cup. May he RIP.



Very sad to hear about the death of Wildcat Heir.

Aqueduct has now cancelled racing for the rest of the day. It's too bad that two horses had to pay (one with his life) before management finally figured out that the conditions were unsafe. :( :evil:

Reported that 3yo filly, Channel of Love, broke down today in training at Aqueduct (1/9/15) and was euthanized.

Getting real ugly at Aqueduct...

I am more and more coming to the realization that this Inner Track winter meet should not be run anymore. Way too many horses dying/getting hurt.

Not really sure what the answer is, but, for whatever reason- the mix or maintenance that they have been using as of late seems to be playing a factor( last few seasons). Don't know if it has changed, the weather (thawing and freezing) is the culprit. Not saying that the maintenance crew hasn't been working hard or don't know what they are doing, I'm sure they do- but all angles need to be investigated and studied. And, then of course, certain trainers perhaps running lame horses into the ground.
