Eltish, runner-up to champion Timber Country in the 1994 Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I), was euthanized last week due to neurological complications at age 20.

Eltish had been standing at stud at Mole's Hill Farm in Millerton, New York, for a stud fee of $3,000.

A homebred for Juddmonte Farm, Eltish was a group 2 winner in England for trainer Sir Henry Cecil. After his strong second-place finish to eventual champion Timber Country in the 1994 Breeders' Cup Juvenile, Eltish was geared for a Kentucky Derby campaign the following spring. The son of Cox's Ridge finished sixth in the 1995 Derby, and was eventually transferred to Bobby Frankel's barn.

Under Frankel's tutelage, Eltish finished second in the 1996 Iselin Handicap (gr. I) and third in the 1997 San Pasqual Handicap (gr. II).
