Grade 1-Placed Louisiana Stallion Givemeaninit Dies Of EPM

Clear Creek Stud in Folsom, La., announced Thursday, Oct. 1 the loss of first-year stallion Givemeaminit to EPM (Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis).

“Anyone who has been involved in the Thoroughbred breeding business is aware of the heartbreaks that often come with it,” a statement from the farm read. “That became abundantly clear to us here at Clear Creek Stud this morning when we lost first year stallion Givemeaminit to EPM.”

The first son of leading Louisiana stallion Star Guitar to enter stud, Givemeaminit was second in the Grade 1 Hopeful Stakes as a 2-year-old and fourth in that year’s Breeders Cup Juvenile.

As a 3-year-old, he won the Louisiana Champions Day Sprint, was third in the G3 Pat Day Mile and was the Louisiana-bred champion colt or gelding. The Valene Farms LLC runner was trained throughout his career by Dallas Stewart and had career earnings of $428,580.

Givemeaminit stood for an advertised fee of $2,500 during his lone season at stud.
