Just a couple of weeks after top Swedish mare Queen L died, another top Swedish mare, Ina Scot, who sensationally won the Prix d’Amerique in 1995, died after she hurt herself in the paddock.

Ina Scot won $3 million and at one time during her career had a winning streak of 31 races. She won a total of 54 races from 90 races.

In Sweden, she swept all the big classic races and on the international scene besides winning the Prix d’Amerique, she won the Gran Criterium de Vitessse at Cagnes sur Mer, the Oslo Grand Prix and Gran Premio della Lotteria.

Ina Scot became immortal by winning the Prix d’Amerique in 1995, driven by Helen A. Johansson. That was the first time the world famous race was won by a woman driver.

Just as Queen L, Ina Scot never became successful as a broodmare, though one of her foals, Paul November, took a mark of 1:53.2f and earned $300,000.
