Lost Mountain Dies at 21

Sad news out of Jeju earlier this month as Lost Mountain, who had been standing at stud on the island for the past fifteen years, passed away on March 5 at the age of twenty one. He had been suffering from worsening arthritis for some time.

On the track, Lost Mountain [Cox’s Ridge – Space Angel (To The Quick)] was a winner of the 1991 Haskell Invitational, Peter Pan Stakes and Dwyer Stakes. Imported to Korea in 1994, he sired a number of strong performing runners, the best known of whom was Bicheonbong [Turn To You (Like You And Yours)] who won the President’s Cup in 2004.

Lost Mountain’s legacy could well be further enhanced this year with his son Nice Choice [Betty’s Rhapsody (Don’t Hesitate)] winning the 2008 Herald Business, the nation’s top two year old race and looking a strong contender for Triple Crown honours beginning next month with the KRA Cup Mile.
