Vinery Stud’s former shuttler & in recent years permanently Australian-based stallion Red Ransom (Roberto-Arabia, by Damascus) died aged 22 after complications following abdominal surgery on Saturday. On the track, Red Ransom recorded 2 wins (setting a 5-furlongs track record at Saratoga in New York on debut & then winning again at Belmont Park) plus a runner-up in his only 3 starts before injury ended his brief career.

Among his 94 individual stakes-winners are 15 Gr1-winners, including Electrocutionist, Casual Look, Perfect Sting, Intikhab, Ransom O’War, Pico Teneriffe, Ekraar, Charge Forward, Typhoon Tracy, All American, Red Clubs, Red Dazzler, Duporth & Onemorenomore.
