VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) - Former Preakness champion Summer Squall
was euthanized Tuesday at Lane's End Farm due to complications of
old age. He was 22.
Summer Squall finished second in the 1990 Kentucky Derby behind
Unbridled, then returned the favor in the Preakness following a
thrilling stretch duel in which he pulled away along the rail.
He did not compete in the Belmont Stakes but returned as a
4-year-old and won the Fayette Handicap in 1991.
Following his racing career, Summer Squall went to stand at
Lane's End. Prominent offspring include 1999 Kentucky Derby winner
Charismatic and former champion 2-year-old filly Storm Song.
