Stallion Social Charter Has Passed Away

Social Charter [Nureyev-Aunt Pearl (Seattle Slew)], who started his racing career in the UK before moving on to Canada and the USA has died at stud in South Korea aged 17.

Social Charter

As a racehorse, in 1999 he won two Group 3 race, the Eclipse Handicap at Woodbine and the Fayette Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland.

He was imported to Korea in October 2000 and was consistantly in the top 15 leading General sires for the next decade.

His progeny was known for being tough and durable and, while he didn’t sire any major race winners, he was responsible for a large number who had long careers with Southpaw, Natural Guy and Bada Jewang among his chief money-earners.

Still standing at the KRA Jeju Stud Farm, he passed away of an unspecified illness in late September.
