    SUCCESSFUL stallion Grinfromeartoear was sadly euthanised today following a long illness.

    A star racehorse and potent sire, Grinfromeartoear was diagnosed with a kidney complication earlier this year, and after trying his best to recover, was losing the battle.

    As such, Alabar Farms made the gut-wrenching decision to put the 23-year-old down.

    Foaled in 1996, Grinfromeartoear only raced as a a two and three year old, with his biggest wins including the Breeders Crown, Metro Pace and Woodrow Wilson.

    Bankrolling more than $735,000 from just nine freshman starts, Grinfromeartoear earned more $1million at three to end his career with stakes of $1,760,000 and a best mark of 1:50:1.

    At stud he has sired the winners of more than $80 million, with his best performers including Mister Big $4,143,492, Mr Feelgood $3,366,157, Not Enough $1,389,925 and Smiling Shard $1,089,831.

    Grinfromeartoear is one of only three pacing stallions to sire two $3 million plus earners.

    “We are deeply saddened to announce that Grinfromeartoear was euthanised today,” Alabar’s Alan Galloway said.

    “Although a bit grumpy at times, Grin was a lovely stallion to have around.

    “His legacy will no doubt continue as a broodmare sire for years to come.”
