Paddy O’Prado, a Grade 1 winner and classic-placed athlete, died in Turkey prior to the 2018 breed season following a paddock trauma, BloodHorse reports.
The son of El Prado was exported to Turkey at the findings and conclusions of the 2017 U.S. spawn season, and resided at Evicmen Harasi for the remainder of the year. However, an officer with the Jockey Club of Turkey told BloodHorse the stallion’s harm came before he was able to handle a single mare.
Paddy O’Prado retired to stud at Spendthrift Farm in 2011, and he stood there for all seven members of his U.S. seasons. His most notable runners include Preakness Stakes runner-up Cherry Wine, and Grade 3 wins Sweeping Paddy and O’Kratos.
Paddy O’Prado retired with five wins in 14 starts for earnings of $1,721, 297. He earned success in the Grade 1 Secretariat Stakes, G2 Dixie Stakes, Virginia Derby, Colonial Turf Cup Stakes, and G3 Palm Beach Stakes. He also finished third to Super Saver in the 2010 Kentucky Derby.
