Bint Marscay | Sarah Andrew

Australian champion Bint Marscay (Aus) (Marscay {Aus}–Eau d’Etoile {NZ}, by *Sir Tristram), heroine of the 1993 G1 Golden Slipper S., was euthanized Monday evening due to complications of chronic arthritis. The 28-year-old mare resided at Old Friends, the Thoroughbred Retirement Farm in Georgetown, KY. As a broodmare, Bint Marscay foaled three stakes winners, including Group 1 winner Bollinger (Aus) (Dehere). Michael Blowen, founder and president of Old Friends, made the announcement Tuesday morning.

“I am saddened to hear of the passing of Bint Marscay,” longtime trainer Richard Freedman said. “She was one of the greatest 2-year-olds to race in Australia, and she remains a yardstick by which Australian 2-year-olds are still measured today. She gave me, my family, and her racing connections so much joy.

“I thank Old Friends for taking such loving care of her in her retirement, she deserved no less,” Freedman added. “Her final years were happy, and her passing was peaceful. RIP old girl, you will be remembered.”

“The probability of a certain set of circumstances coming together in a meaningful (or tragic) way is so low that it simply cannot be considered mere coincidence. ”

I heard that today.  I was there the day she won the GS.  OMG.  How long ago.  I also visited Old Friends.  Its worth a visit for horse lovers if in Lexington.  Its just on the outskirts and its a beautiful place.
How did she end up in Kentucky ???

26 years ago, INCREDIBLE!

It also means it is near on 25 years since her great contempory ANGST died.
