G1 Prix de Diane Longines victress Senga (Blame-Beta Leo, by A.P. Indy) died last Thursday, Jour de Galop reported. The 4-year-old was in foal to Galileo (Ire). Also a winner of the G3 Prix de la Grotte in 10 starts for $781,854 in earnings, the Pascal Bary trainee, a half-sister to French SW Bolting (War Front), was bred and raced by the Niarchos family’s Flaxman Holdings. Her second dam was the high class French highweight and Group 1 winner Denebola (Storm Cat), while her third was the blue hen mare Coup de Genie (Mr. Prospector).
“Senga died last Thursday,” Alan Cooper, who manages the Niarchos Family’s bloodstock interests, told Jour de Galop. “She was in foal to Galileo. It is a real tragedy, as the Niarchos family has been developing the family for a long time.”
