Veteran Stallion Include Dies At Age 25

Include, a venerable part of the Airdrie Stud stallion roster for nearly two decades, was euthanized July 18 due to complications from a long-running heart condition, Thoroughbred Daily News reports.

The 25-year-old son of Broad Brush had been residing at Airdrie as a pensioner since last fall after his heart condition was discovered. He’d stood at the Midway, Ky., farm since entering stud in 2003, with frequent shuttle trips to Argentina for the Southern Hemisphere breeding season. He was that country’s leading sire in 2015.

Born in Maryland, Include racked up victories in the Grade 1 Pimlico Special Handicap and G2 Massachusetts Handicap and New Orleans Handicap. He was named Marlyand’s Horse of the Year in 2001, and he retired with 10 wins in 20 starts for earnings of $1,659,560.

From 17 crops of racing age, Include has sired 800 winners with combined progeny earnings of more than $63.3 million.

Include’s top domestic runners include Grade 1 winners Panty Raid, Include Betty, and Include Me Out, Grade 2 winners St. John’s River, Sconsin and Redeemed, and Grade 3 winner and millionaire She’s All In.

Outside of the U.S., Include was responsible for 2018 Puerto Rican Horse of the Year Mishegas, Canadian champion Riker, Panamanian champion Ferox and Argentine champions Sobradora Inc, Sociologa Inc, and Samba Inc.
