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.
