International Sire
Mr. Greeley euthanized


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.”

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. -->
