Stalwart German sire Kornado dies at 22

STALWART German sire Kornado died at his base of Gestüt Schattauer Hof earlier this month. The son of Superlative was 22.

Kornado was bred in Britain by Bearstone Stud out of the Lord Gayle mare K-Sera. He was trained in Germany by Bruno Schütz for Stall Granum and won six Group races.

His finest hour came in 1993 in the Group 1 Preis der Privatbankiers at Düsseldorf, in which he beat Chesa Plana by two and a half lengths.

The highlights of Kornado's stud career were his son Monos, runner-up in the Gran Premio del Jockey Club and Premio Roma, and his daughter Shapira, runner-up in the Prix d'Astarte and fourth to Peeress in the 2005 Sun Chariot Stakes.

He is also the damsire of this season's Group 3 Bavarian Classic winner Pakal.
