New Zealand stallion Ekraar (USA) (Red Ransom-Sacahuista) has passed away at the age of 21. He raced mostly in Europe winning a G1 in Italy, running second in the HK Vase, and third in the Dubai Sheema among other races.

At stud in New Zealand he produced 2× G1 winners, from small crops of foals, New Zealand Derby winner Habibi (now at stud in USA) and multiple G1 winner Shez Sinsational who produced her first winner yesterday.

He spent his last few years at Newmarket Stud in New Zealand and was clearly much loved

Burning Roma Dies at Age 20
He had the percentages and they looked gorgeous, but breeders are finicky and he fell out of favor," he said. "He was popular in 2009 and 2010 and then he cooled off. The days when people breed to race are not like what they were before. We took care of him like he was a king because he was a king.

I missed the post about Train R0bbery--a great mare. RIP.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

This is very tragic. He was made to run in all the big races, then finally gets another stakes win, and then...

So sad for all who loved him, what a wonderful horse. "Everybody wants a horse like him. He was good, he was honest and he was bold." (Nicky Richards) Rest well, champ.

It is my fervent hope that this horse was drugged to the gills when they trailered him 5 1/2 hours to Rood & Riddle with this injury.
