    Dynaformer, outstanding stallion and sire of many top class and iron-hard performers, has died.

    He’d had a heart attack a couple of weeks ago and was immediately retired from stud duties, but his health took a turn for the worse yesterday and he was put to sleep.

    My favourite American stallion, by a long way.

    Mine too Venusian (and thanks for the link).
    Unusually for American sires, Dynaformer imposed a fair amount of stamina in to his stock. They acted well on turf too. John Gosden did particularly well with those by Dynaformer.

    Will be sadly missed on this side of the pond.

    I take it he’s ‘lying in state’ like Barbaro?

    I did and assumed that’s what it meant but wasn’t sure.

    He’s buried already in the Three Chimneys cemetery, next to Rahy. By "pay their respects" they mean visitors can see his gravesite.

    Thanks for the link, Miss Woodford. I often wish [having gone to Dessie’s ‘funeral’] that we had more ways of paying our respects to our departing heroes over here. There’s a country park a few miles from where I live that has the grave of a Derby winner from a long way back that I mean to visit one day.
