Grade 1 Winner, Sire Whywhywhy Dies In Korea

Multiple stakes winner Whywhywhy, who captured the G1 Belmont Futurity as a 2-year-old, died earlier this year in Korea, according to the Daily Racing Form.

Whywhywhy, a 17-year-old son of Mr. Greeley, had stood in Korea since 2011. He began his stud career in Kentucky, first at Spendthrift Farm and then at Gainesway.

Whywhywhy finished second in his career debut; he then broke his maiden in the G3 Flash Stakes. From there he went on to capture the G2 Sanford Stakes and G1 Futurity at Belmont Park.

After a disappointing 3-year-old season, Whywhywhy was retired to stud. Altogether he won three of nine starts, with earnings of $315,015.

Whywhywhy has sired 11 crops of racing age, with 257 winners. His best North American runner was Nownownow, winner of the inaugural Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf.
