MGSW Quick Call (Quack–Sadie Mae, by Sadair) was euthanized Tuesday at the age of 35 due to the infirmities of old age. He was the oldest horse in TRF’s herd of 650 horses.
A two-time graded winner, he retired with a record of 86-16-15-12 and earnings of $807,817. The gelding went on to be a riding horse and eventually ended up in TRF’s Second Chances Program.
A horse-for-the-course in Saratoga, where a stakes race is named in his honor, Quick Call will be cremated and his ashes will be buried at Saratoga’s Clare Court, which is also the resting place of Fourstardave, A Phenomenon and Mourjane.
“”He still had fans and sponsors that supported him along the way,” said Jennifer Stevens, TRF Director of Development and Communications. “Whenever his name is mentioned at a New York track, someone will tell a story about him. We are honored to have him in our herd for 18 years. People would visit the farm to just see him and to have their picture taken with him. Until the end he was dignified and all class; he knew he was special”.”
