Laminitis Claims Young Sire Fast Anna At Age 10

Fast Anna, a Grade 1-placed runner and young sire, was euthanized Monday due to complications from laminitis.

Tom Hamm, director of nominations and sales at Three Chimneys, said the 10-year-old son of Medaglia d’Oro had been struggling with the disease for a month.

Fast Anna has sired three crops of racing age, with 45 winners and combined progeny earnings of more than $2.6 million. He has sired six stakes winners, led by Been Studying Her, a two-time stakes winner in California who has earned $305,602.

During his own on-track career, Fast Anna won three of nine starts and earned $296,731. He won the Sawgrass Handicap on turf, while on dirt, he finished second in the Grade 1 King’s Bishop Stakes and G3 Gallant Bob Stakes.

Bred in Kentucky by Frank Calabrese, Fast Anna is out of the champion Rahy mare Dreaming of Anna. He hailed from the family of champion and leading sire Kitten’s Joy, and graded stakes winners Precious Kitten, Lewis Michael, and Justenuffhumor.
