Sequel New York reports that a trailer fire that occurred during transport from Kentucky to New York Tuesday killed three mares and their foals.
According to the farm's website, killed in the fire were: La Java and her colt by Constitution, owned by Red Diamond Stables; Starship Voodoo and her colt by Macho Uno, owned by Starship Stables; and Southern Sunshine and her filly by Orb, owned by Sequel Thoroughbreds. All three mares were also confirmed back in foal.
La Java was a Medaglia d'Oro mare who was in foal to Orb. Her first foal Gio d'Oro is a stakes-placed 3-year-old of $119,000.
Starship Voodoo was a stakes-placed producer of five foals to race, with four winners and $426,000 in progeny earnings. She was back in foal to Macho Uno.
Southern Sunshine was a $340,000 OBS 2-year-old who won $155,000 during her racing career. The Orb filly was her first foal, and she was back in foal to Unified.
“We send our condolences to all the connections that are sharing in this loss and hope to provide some comfort to them by memorializing these beautiful animals here for us to remember,” the farm wrote on its website.
