Breeder/Owner Steinbrenner Dies

George Steinbrenner III, a major breeder/owner and principal owner of the New York Yankees, died the morning of July 13 in Tampa of a heart attack. He had turned 80 July 4.


Steinbrenner owned Kinsman Stud Farm near Ocala, Fla., and raced in the name Kinsman Stable. He raced numerous major winners and started several horses in the Kentucky Derby (gr. I).


His first Derby starter, Steve's Friend, also was his initial major winner. Steve’s Friend prepped for the 1977 Run for the Roses with a triumph in the Hollywood Derby (gr. I) but proved no match in the Churchill classic against Seattle Slew, the eventual Triple Crown winner.
