BC Sprint winner Silver Train succumbs to colic
"Silver Train was all class, the consummate professional and will be sorely missed," stated majority shareholder Hank Nothhaft. "Given his proclivity for producing winners, we expected big things from Silver Train for years to come. Given our expansive plans for him in 2014, his sudden passing was a real shock."
Each of the past three years, Silver Train's progeny earnings have exceeded $3 million. He is represented by 30 stakes horses around the world, including Italian champion and Scandinavian champion miler Silver Ocean and graded stakes winners Enaitz, J J's Lucky Train and Guaraguau.
"This is truly a solemn day with the unexpected passing of such a promising young sire, it is with a heavy heart we look towards the new year," commented Carl McEntee, agent for HnR Nothhaft Horseracing LLC.
