Sharon Brown, Dam of Holy Bull, Euthanized

The dam of Holy Bull was euthanized at George Steinbrenner's Kinsman Stud Farm in Ocala, FL due to the infirmities of old age. She had been pensioned since 2005 and was living out her years turned out in a paddock along with Al’s Helen, the dam of Grade 3 winner and sire Pure Precision, and Undeniably, the dam of Grade 2 winner and sire Concerto.

Holy bull is a Racing Hall of Famer and earned over 2.4 million dollars. George Steinbrenner bought Sharon Brown for $13,000 at the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company’s 1993 winter mixed sale, eight months before Holy Bull won his two-year-old debut.
