Tampa Bay Derby (G3) winner Odysseus was euthanized yesterday due to complications from laminitis while receiving treatment for colitis at Hagyard Equine. Odysseus came off the 2010 Triple Crown Trail after hyper extending his knee in the Grade I Blue Grass at Keeneland. Owner Satish Sanan still remained hopeful Odysseus would make a successful return to racing. “Our family is deeply saddened by the loss of Odysseus. He gave us thrills as a race horse and it is a big loss for us not to see him fulfill his racing potential.” Sanan stated.
Odysseus (Malibu Moon- Persimmon Hill, by Conquistador Cielo), was bred in Kentucky by Haymarket Farm and Lakemont Stable. A $110,000 Fasig-Tipton New York Saratoga August yearling sale purchase in 2008, he was bought by Padua the next year for $250,000 at the Ocala Breeders' Sales Co.'s March 2-year-old sale from Nick de Meric, agent. The winner of $223,670, Odysseus had three wins and one second from five lifetime starts.
