Saint Liam

Saint Liam was an American thoroughbred racehorse who was voted 2005 Eclipse Award Horse of the Year honors. Sired by Saint Ballado out of the dam Quiet Dance, by Quiet American, Saint Liam was unraced as a two-year-old. At age three he started three races, earning his best result with a 2nd place finish in the Iowa Derby. Owned by William Warren and trained by Richard E. Dutrow, Jr., in his four-year-old season Saint Liam began to show his ability, winning the Grade II Clark Handicap and losing the Grade I Woodward Stakes by only a neck to eventual 2004 Horse of the Year Ghostzapper. In 2005, Saint Liam came into his own, capturing four Grade I races including the Donn Handicap, the Stephen Foster Handicap, and the Woodward Stakes. He was second in the Grade I Whitney Handicap to Commentator. In his last race, jockey Jerry Bailey rode him to victory in the Breeders' Cup Classic, after which he was retired having achieved a record of 9-6-1 in 20 races and career earnings of $4,456,995 million. Saint Liam was standing at stud at Lane's End Farm in Versailles, Kentucky when, in a freak accident in August 2006 he slipped and fell, suffering an untreatable left tibial fracture. The 6-year-old stallion was humanely euthanized at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. Before his death he'd covered a number of mares, 115 of which were in foal and 96 that had foals that went on to race.
