Claiborne's Out Of Place euthanized

KENTUCKY stallion Out Of Place has been euthanized after suffering a fractured femur in a paddock accident. The 23-year-old stallion had produced 39 stakes winners including millionaire sprinter Nightmare Affair and Free Fighter, winner of the Grade 3 Stars And Stripes Turf Handicap at Arlington in September.

Out Of Place was owned and bred by Cynthia Phipps and trained by Claude ‘Shug' McGaughey. He won at Grade 3 level in the Clark Handicap, and was Grade 1-placed four times; he was third in the Woodward Stakes and wassecond in three handicaps in the top grade.

The son of Cox's Ridge is out of the Damascus mare Arabian Dancer, making him a brother to the Grade 1-placed Frolic. Their dam's race record reads two wins and a second in the Grade 1 Matron Stakes from three starts.

He retired to stud in Florida in 1993 and returned to Claiborne, where he was foaled, in 1999, remaining there for the rest of his life. His fee for 2010 was to be $5,000, which had fallen from $17,500 in 2003.
