International Sire Kingmambo Pensioned

Kingmambo, long recognized as one of the world’s leading international sires, has been pensioned from stallion duty at William S. Farish’s Lane’s End Farm near Versailles, Ky. The 20-year-old son of Mr. Prospector is represented by 86 stakes winners as a stallion. His runners have earned nearly $95 million.


“He’s one of the great stallions of all time. He has sired classic horses, sprinters, and milers,” Farish said.


Farish alluded to Kingmambo’s imminent retirement earlier in September. “He has had a terrible neck problem for some time,” he told The Blood-Horse. “It’s not his fertility; it’s his ability to perform.”


Kingmambo was bred to one mare this year, and she failed to get in foal.
