Retired stallion Carnegie has been put down at Darley’s Kelvinside Stud in the NSW Hunter Valley.
Sheikh Mohammed’s first Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner in 1994, Carnegie was euthanased due to the infirmities of old age.
Carnegie began his stud career for Darley in Japan and shuttled to New Zealand where his first crop included Victoria Derby winner Amalfi and Rosehill Guineas winner Carnegie Express.
He spent his last seven years at stud at Kelvinside and was pensioned from stud duty at the end of 2008.
Carnegie was by legendary sire Sadler’s Wells out of 1980 Arc winner Detroit.
As well as Amalfi and Carnegie Express, Carnegie produced multiple Group One winners Tuesday Joy, Perlin and Vision And Power.
“Carnegie was a magnificent racehorse who won the most cherished prize in European racing and he went on to have a distinguished career at stud. Everyone at Darley will remember him fondly as he had a wonderful temperament and was such a pleasant horse to be around,” Henry Plumptre, Darley Australia managing director said.
