Sky Classic, a four-time Champion in the U.S. and Canada, died peacefully this morning in his paddock at Josephine Abercrombie’s Pin Oak Stud, according to farm manager Clifford Barry. The 28-year-old stallion had stood at the farm since his retirement from racing in 1992 and had been pensioned from stud duty in January of this year.
Danzig - In many ways it was the incredible success of Danzig (Pas de Nom, by Admiral’s Voyage) that put the seal on Northern Dancer’s reputation as a sire of sires. Although undefeated in three sprints at two and three, Danzig never contested a stakes race and got his opportunity at Claiborne Farm largely through the connection of his trainer, Woody Stephens, to the Hancock family, owner of Claiborne.
