Stephen Got Even (A.P. Indy-Immerse, by Cox’s Ridge), millionaire and winner of the 2000 GI Donn H., has died at age 23 at Lane’s End Farm.
Stephen Got Even stood at Lane’s End from 2001 through 2015 and retired from stud alongside his sire. He is the sire of champion 2-year-old colt Stevie Wonderboy and Grade I winners First Dude and I Want Revenge.
He sired no fewer than 38 black-type stakes winners; his progeny have earned more than $50.5 million.
Bred by W. S. Farish and W. S. Kilroy, Stephen Got Even was foaled at Lane’s End Farm and sold to Stephen and Tomisue Hilbert for $325,000 at the 1997 Keeneland July Yearling Sale. He will be buried in the cemetery at Lane’s End.
“Stephen Got Even will be greatly missed at the farm and will be remembered for his kind disposition,” a press release from Lane’s End read.
