Florida Sire Fury Kapcori Dies At Age 11

Fury Kapcori, a Grade 3 winner whose stud career was just getting started, died last month due to complications from colic.

The 11-year-old son of Tiznow resided at Journeyman Stallions in Ocala, Fla., where he had resided since 2016.

“He colicked one night, and it turned into colitis,” said Journeyman’s Brent Fernung. “He was a nice horse. He could get you a runner. It’s a shame, he probably never got the opportunity that he should have, like the stallions that were able to attract bigger books of mares. He was getting by with 30 to 50 mares.”

Fernung said the stallion fell ill around the time of the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co. June Sale of 2-Year-Olds and Horses of Racing Age, which began on June 9.

From three crops of racing age, Fury Kapcori has sired 17 winners, with combined progeny earnings of $833,570.

His top runners include High On Gin, a multiple stakes winner in Louisiana, and The Goddess Lyssa, who won the Minaret Stakes earlier this year at Tampa Bay Downs.

During his own racing career, Fury Kapcori won six of 18 starts for earnings of $521,040.

Racing for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer in partnership with Rick Awtrey and George Todaro, Fury Kapcori won his second career start at Golden Gate Fields as a juvenile, then remained in Northern California to win the listed Charlie Palmer Futurity at Fresno. He finished his 2-year-old season at Hollywood Park where he finished second in the listed Real Quiet Stakes and the G1 Cash Call Futurity.

Future campaigns saw Fury Kapcori compete primarily in Southern California, highlighted by a four-race winning streak at Santa Anita Park to begin his 2014 campaign, which was highlighted by scores in the black type Santana Mile Stakes and the Grade 3 Precisionist Stakes. His streak was halted with a runner-up effort in the G2 Californian Stakes.
