Chesapeake City, MD--Winbak Farm is sad to announce the passing of trotting stallion, Malabar Man. He was 17.
A son of Supergill-Lady McBur, a Meadow Road mare, Malabar Man’s looks matched his royal pedigree. With a long list of awards, including being the 1997 U.S. Horse Of The Year and being inducted into the Living Hall of Fame in 2008, Malabar Man was a true champion. His 26 racing wins included the Breeders Crown at 2 and the Hambletonian, Breeders Crown and Bluegrass at 3. He earned $2,143,903 in his racing career, where he was trained by Jimmy Takter and Conny Svensson and owned by breeder Malvern Burroughs.
While standing at stud in New York, he was the sire of seven horses who have earned more than $500,000, 287 who have trotted in 2:00 or faster, and his offspring have earned a collaborative $36,965,237. His offspring include 2008 Two-Year-Old Trotting Filly of The Year, Honorable Daughter, who won 11 times in her career and earned $979,236, and Armbro Barrister who earned $972,896 and won 51 times.
Most recently, he was a favorite of the international tourists of the World Trotting Conference who came to visit. His last crop will be born in 2012.
