International Sire Mr. Greeley euthanized

Mr. Greeley has sired 53 stakes winners

Gainesway regrets to announce that their stallion Mr. Greeley was euthanized early Tuesday, November 30.  The 18-year-old son of Gone West was diagnosed with laminitis several weeks ago, but his condition recently had deteriorated.

Antony Beck, President of Gainesway, commented that, “All of us at Gainesway are saddened at the loss of a great stallion.  He was not only a great stallion, but a great horse.”

On the racetrack, Mr. Greeley was a winner at two, but he showed extraordinary consistency at three, winning the Lafayette S. (G3), Swale S. (G3), and Spectacular Bid Breeders’ Cup S. (G3), and placing in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1), Jerome H. (G2), Hutchison S. (G2), and Riva Ridge S. (G3).  He retired at the end of his three-year-old campaign with a career record of five wins and six seconds, and earnings of $474,452.

As a stallion, Mr. Greeley has been represented by such top-class colts (and now sires) as El Corredor (Cigar Mile H.-G1 etc.) and Whywhywhy (Futurity S.-G1 etc.), but his daughters also have proven to be truly extraordinary. Those remarkable fillies have been led by European Champion Finsceal Beo (Ire), who accounted for the Irish One Thousand Guineas (G1) and English One Thousand Guineas (G1) on her way to seven graded stakes wins and placings.

To date, Mr. Greeley has sired 53 worldwide stakes winners, including the 2010 Graded Stakes-winning fillies Aruna (G2) and Laughing Lashes (G2). His offspring have included 22 graded black-type winners and earners of more than $50-million.  In 2010, his final year at stud, Mr. Greeley covered 128 mares, with 86% of those mares reported to have conceived.

Mr. Greeley will be buried at Gainesway.
