Juvenile champ War Pass dies

WAR PASS (Cherokee Run), the champion juvenile colt of 2007, died Christmas Eve at William S. Farish's Lane's End Farm near Versailles, Kentucky. The five-year-old stallion had just arrived the evening before in good order from standing his second Southern Hemisphere season at Widden Stud in Australia.


The morning of his death War Pass showed no signs of illness or injury. He was turned out in his paddock and died several hours later. Preliminary necropsy results are inconclusive.


War Pass compiled a record 7-5-1-0 with earnings of $1,583,400. He was undefeated in four starts at age two, winning his debut at Saratoga by 2 3/4 lengths and later notching an allowance at the same course by 5 1/2 lengths. He made his stakes debut in the Champagne S. (G1) at Belmont Park, winning by 1 1/2 lengths, then concluded his championship campaign with a 4 /4-length score in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) at Monmouth Park.


High-weighted on the Experimental Free Handicap, War Pass made his three-year-old debut in an allowance at Gulfstream Park. He won for fun by 7 1/2 lengths, but met his first reversal when last of seven in the Tampa Bay Derby (G3) at odds of 1-20. He fared better in what would be his final career start in the Wood Memorial S. (G1) at Aqueduct, finishing a half-length second to Tale of Ekati.

War Pass was not sound.,,,,,,
have a stallion work BOTH hemispheres and no wonder they die young. Happens to Japanese ones all the time who double up in Australia
Such a shame to lose a colt of this magnitude. Especially at an age that he could still be on the racetrack. War Pass was really a front running machine. A real talent. The quality of colt that hate lose, whether it be on the racetrack or in the breeding shed.
Just, Rest in piece..
