Prix de la Foret winner Tomba dies aged 16

TOMBA, winner of 13 races including the Group 1 Prix de la Foret, has died aged 16. 

The son of Efisio suffered a heart attack on Thursday in his paddock at Fox Farm in Hundon, Suffolk, where he had stood for the past two years.

The tough and consistent sprinter raced 45 times over five seasons, and his race record includes a Group 2 Cork and Orrery Stakes victory as well as three third placings in three Haydock Park Sprint Cups. 

“He always tried and gave his owner Poilin Good a lot of memorable days,” said Robin Sharp of Fox Farm.

Tomba’s most notable offspring was Chief Editor, a promising dual Listed-placed sprinter who was fatally injured in the Palace House Stakes last year.

Like Tomba, Chief Editor was owned and bred by Good.
