Azeri's Sire Jade Hunter Dies

Jade Hunter, a multiple grade I winner who sired 2002 Horse of the Year Azeri, was euthanized Sunday, Jan. 23, at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute near Lexington because of complications from colic.

The 27-year-old son of Mr. Prospector had been pensioned at Old Friends, the Thoroughbred Retirement Facility, near Georgetown, Ky., since 2009. 
“Jade Hunter was a very proud and confident stallion with an intelligence that matched his beauty,” said Old Friends president and founder Michael Blowen. “It's very hard on all his caretakers to lose him and (fellow pensioned stallion) Polish Navy (who died Jan. 6) so close together.”
E.A. Cox was the breeder of Kentucky-bred Jade Hunter, who was produced from Irish-bred Jadana (by Pharly). Jade Hunter was bought for $700,000 by Sheikh Mohammed’s Darley Stud Management at the 1985 Keeneland July yearling sale.
