Unbridled’s Heart, a promising young Texas stallion whose first crop of foals hits the track this year, died June 8 after undergoing colic surgery. The 10-year-old son of Unbridled’s Song stood the 2015 breeding season at Double Infinity Ranch after previously standing at Keen Farms.

Sold for $1 million as a yearling, Unbridled’s Heart broke his maiden at first asking for Darley Stable with a 10-length victory going 1 1/16 miles on the main track at Belmont Park. He earned a 101 Beyer Speed Figure for that effort and went on to record two more wins on the turf and place in stakes at Belmont and Lone Star Park. His dam is the Farma Way mare Wild Heart Dancing, a four-time graded stakes winner of nearly $600,000.

“He was a breathtaking horse and made an impact on everyone that met him,” said owner Ian Yarnot. “We hope for his memory to live on through his babies but are heartbroken over his loss. He will be sorely missed but never forgotten.”
