Code of Honor | Chelsea Durand

Code of Honor (Noble Mission {GB}–Reunited, by Dixie Union), winner of the 2019 GI Runhappy Travers S. and GI Jockey Club Gold Cup, was euthanized Friday after suffering a bout of colic. Bred and raced by W.S. Farish, the 6-year-old stood his first season at stud at the Farish family's Lane's End Farm this past spring.

Trained by Shug McGaughey, Code of Honor was second in the 2018 GI Champagne S. He won the GII Fountain of Youth S. the following March before finishing third in the GI Florida Derby and second in the GI Kentucky Derby.

Code of Honor kicked off a three-race win streak with his 3 1/4-length victory in the 2019 GIII Dwyer S., adding the Travers in his next start before being promoted to the victory against his elders in the Gold Cup.

“Code of Honor was such a special horse to both our family and the farm,” said Lane's End's Bill Farish. “Winning the Travers with a homebred will stand as one of the greatest highlights in the farm's history. We are saddened by the loss of Code of Honor, who was just embarking on a promising career at stud.”
