MIDDLE PARK STAKES WINNER DIES

03 Mar 2020 10:34


 

Bahamian Bounty, winner of the 1996 G1 Middle Park Stakes, has died.

A son of Cadeaux Genereux, Bahamian Bounty won the Group 1 Prix Morny on only his third start, defeating subsequently successful sire Zamindar.

Prior to his next start, Bahamian Bounty was purchased privately by Sheikh Mohammed and went on to win the Middle Park Stakes, earning himself the European Champion Two-Year-Old Colt title at the Cartier Awards.

Bahamian Bounty’s stud career spanned 18 years at stud, siring 34 stakes winners to date, including Group 1-winning brothers Pastoral Pursuits and Goodricke.

His presence as a broodmare sire also continues to be felt, with his daughters having produced ten stakes winners and four Group winners to date including Al Raya, who took last year’s Prix d’Arenberg.

Bahamian Bounty was retired from stud duties in 2015 due to declining fertility and enjoyed a happy retirement at the National Stud under the care of his handler of 15 years, Paddy Meehan.
