The record-setting half-brother to world champion Black Caviar was euthanized on humane grounds on Sunday following a months-long battle with the foot injury laminitis, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
The 2-year-old known as “Jimmy” had received treatment from some of the top veterinary surgeons in the nation at the University of Melbourne Equine Centre at Werribee, in an attempt to beat the often-debilitating disease. Handlers had noticed the colt’s deteriorating condition on Christmas Eve and by the end of the week Jimmy was unable to get to his feet.
The unraced colt by Redoute’s Choice, out of the Desert Sun dam Helsinge, first made headlines as Australia’s most expensive racehorse when he was purchased at sale for a record-setting AUS$5 million by the BC3 syndication last April. (inglis.com.au)
