Breeders’ Cup Sprint Winner, Our Mims Retirement Haven Resident Elmhurst Dies At Age 31

Our Mims Retirement Haven in Paris, Ky., mourns the loss of 31-year-old, Elmhurst (1990, Wild Again x Mimbet), grandson of Our Mims. Elmhurst left this earth on Jan. 4 due to heart failure.

Elmhurst raced 51 times with eight wins, 10 seconds and six third-place finishes, winning a total of $1,100,567. His most notable win was the 1997 Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

He arrived at “The Haven” on Nov. 1, 2011. He quickly became a favorite of not only the ladies of Our Mims Retirement Haven, but also the people who came to visit. Since he was born on Feb. 14, he was crowned the King of Hearts and was notorious for his antics with women. He had been known to pop bra straps. If he saw cleavage, he would pull the shirt out and look down.

OMRH owner and president Pete Mirabito commented, “Thank you ‘Elmo’ for filling my wife Jeanne’s heart with joy.”

“Mo was truly one of a kind,” said Ann Cheek, OMRH vice president. “A real ladies’ man. I will miss his flirty ways and sweet whisper nickers.”

Sidna Madden, director of development noted, “Elmhurst was an amazing guy – a true gentleman that embodied everything I love about Thoroughbreds. He proudly helped carry the name of the Haven in memory of his granddam, Our Mims. I will certainly miss his antics, along with his loving spirit too, but it brings a smile to my face knowing he and Jeanne, along with Our Mims and all the other ladies of the Haven that have gone before him, are now all reunited. His longevity is also a true testament to the care that all of the horses at the Haven receive.”

After being cremated, Elmhurst will be laid to rest in the farm’s Invincible Spirit cemetery.
