WinStar Farm Sire Laoban Dies Unexpectedly

Laoban, a leading second-crop sire, has died unexpectedly, WinStar Farm announced today.

The 8-year-old son of Uncle Mo had relocated to WinStar Farm last year from Sequel Stallions in New York and was standing his initial season at WinStar.

“It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce that we lost Laoban this morning,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar’s president, CEO, and racing manager. “He had quickly become one of our favorite stallions, and it’s sad that we will not have the opportunity to see how influential he could have been as a sire. His passing will leave a tremendous void for all of us, and he will be greatly missed.”

As a sire, Laoban is represented by Grade 1 winner Simply Ravishing, a 6 1/4-length winner of the Grade 1 Alcibiades Stakes at Keeneland, and Grade 2 winner Keepmeinmind, winner of the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes, multiple Grade 1-placed and most recently fourth in the Preakness Stakes, among others.
