Champ Ashado's Dam Goulash Euthanased
US 16-year-old broodmare Goulash (dam of 2-time champion Ashado, Gr1-winner Sunriver & Gr3-winner Saint Stephen, plus stakes-placed Ballado's Halo & Storm Creek Rising) "was euthanased because of founder" reported bloodhorse.com. Goulash (Mari's Book-Wise Bride, by Blushing Groom) produced 10 consecutive foals from 1999-2008; her youngest foal is an Unbridled's Song yearling colt sold for US$925,000 to Coolmore representative Demi O'Byrne at last month's Keeneland September Sale. Goulash's star daughter Ashado (by Saint Ballado) won 12 of 21 starts (including 7 Gr1 victories) & retired with career earnings of US$3,931,440 (just behind Azeri's US$4,079,820 all-time record for a female in North America); she was subsequently sold for a world-record US$9 million for a broodmare or broodmare prospect when bought by Sheikh Mohammed's bloodstock advisor John Ferguson at the 2005 Keeneland November breeding stock sale.
