There is a story on it at thoroughbredailynews.com in tomorrow's edition, which I just got. Google was where I got it earlier, one of their news blurbs. This phone has driven me and 3 repairmen to meeting at a bar. It's allergic to links.

The horse racing community mourns the loss of Canadian Hall of Fame builder Gustav Schickedanz, who passed away on June 17. A very successful construction and development entrepreneur, Mr. Schickedanz was inducted into the Canadian Racing Hall of Fame in 2009 and received the E.P. Taylor Award of Merit recognizing life-long dedication and commitment to Thoroughbred racing at the 2018 Sovereign Awards held in April.
Mr. Schickedanz got into the racing industry first as an owner, then as an owner and breeder, operating out of his Schonberg Farm in King township, Ontario. His most successful horses include Queen's Plate winner Woodcarver, along with fellow Sovereign Award winners Mobil, Glanmire, Kimchi and the last Canadian Triple Crown winner, 2003's Canadian Horse of the Year, Wando.
