Florida stallion Black Mambo euthanized

BLACK MAMBO, a leading second crop sire in Florida, has been euthanized after suffering from severe equine protozoalmyeloencephalitis (EMP). He stood the past season at Bridlewood Farm in Florida for $4,000.

The son of Kingmambo raced once for Aidan O'Brien before going to the US, where he won three minor races and was stakes-placed.

He was sold for $1.1 million at Keeneland's September Yearling Sale and was bred in Kentucky by William S. Farish and W.S. Kilroy. He is the sire of one stakes winner, Big Push.

Black Mambo was a brother to Love Me True, the dam of Duke Of Marmalade, and his dam is a half-sister to the dam of A.P. Indy.

Bridlewood's general manager George Isaacs said: "From day one, an aggressive treatment program was administered to combat this insidious disease. Although he fought valiantly, he was not able to recover from the damage that the parasite caused. In my entire career, I have never seen a horse so affected by this condition".
