Qatar Racing stallion Havana Gold dies
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our stallion Havana Gold, aged 13, after sustaining a fatal pelvis injury this afternoon.
Havana Gold was the Leading UK-based First-Season Sire in 2017 and the Leading UK-based sire of 2yos in 2021.
His first son to stud, Havana Grey, was crowned Leading UK-based First-Season Sire in 2022 and Havana Gold was also the sire of numerous Stakes winners including El Caballo, Tabdeed, Treasuring, Chipotle, Fearby, Chateau and last season’s unbeaten 2yo Streets of Gold.
The son of Teofilo was bred by Sir Eric Parker out of Group-winning sprinter Jessica’s Dream.
Havana Gold was bought during his 2yo career by Qatar Racing and went on to win the Gr.1 Prix Jean Prat as a 3yo for Qatar Racing and CSH before retiring to stud at Tweenhills in 2014, where he will be much missed.
