Dam Of US Champ The Wicked North Dies
US 27-year-old broodmare Wicked Witchcraft (dam of 1994 champion older male The Wicked North) died "of natural causes" at Randal Farm in California, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Illinois-bred Wicked Witchcraft (Good Behaving-Surrogate, by Yatasto) also produced graded stakes-winners A Lady From Dixie & Wild And Wicked, plus stakes-winner Wicked Destiny. Wicked Witchcraft (who won 3 stakes at Sportsman's Park in 1985) was purchased for US$92,000 in the 1990 Keeneland November breeding stock sale when The Wicked North was a yearling; The Wicked North (by Far North) subsequently won the 1994 Gr1 Oaklawn Handicap, Gr1 Californian Stakes & Gr2 San Antonio Handicap during his championship campaign. The Wicked North is now a pensioned stallion at True North Farm in Kentucky.
