Brittany Stallion Management sadly reports the passing of its great sire Artsplace after a valiant battle with laminitis. Artsplace was euthanized at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center on Monday, October 30. The 18-year-old stallion had rallied at times, but could not beat the ailment that also caused the death of his sire, Abercrombie. “We made the decision to spare him any further suffering,” said Brittany manager Art Zubrod.

Artsplace had sired 15 million-dollar winners and nine Breeders Crown champions, with the elite group led by his son Art Major p,4,1:48.4 ($2,727,224) and the pacing mares Glowing Report p,1:49.2 ($1,909,956), Worldly Beatuy p,4, 1:49.3 ($1,900,255) and Galleria p,4,1:49.1 ($1,814,453).

At the time of his passing he led all active pacing sires with progeny earnings of over $114-million.

As a racehorse Artsplace first earned his reputation as a World Champion with his phenomenal victory in the 1990 Breeders Crown 2-Year-Old Colt Pace at Pompano Park for trainer Gene Riegle and driver John Campbell.

Artsplace was owned during his racing career by his breeders, George Segal and the late Brian Monieson. They syndicated the stallion following his 4-year-old campaign and he stood at stud his entire career at Southwind Farms in New Jersey.

Artsplace's legacy will live on through his sons and daughters who will no doubt continue to shape the breed.
