It was a sad day at Waikato Stud yesterday, with dual Gr.1 winning matriarch Glamour Puss passing away.
Glamour Puss, who was 16, was put down after complications following colic surgery.
“She was a wonderful mare for the stud. Not only did she win two Gr.1’s and five black-type races in Australia for trainer Danny O’Brien, but she produced a foal each and every year since she retired, with all to race winning, including the two stakes performers Beckham and Ngarimu, “ said Mark Chittick.
“She gave us a heck of a lot of great memories and was a very special mare to the stud.
“She is buried alongside O’Reilly, with whom she had four of her nine foals.”
