13/05/02 International Shock as Mozart Dies

Brilliant international galloper Mozart has died suddenly after a bout of acute colitis.

News of the sudden death is a major set back for international breeding operation Coolmore who were set to shuttle the horse to stand at stud in Australia this season.

The Champion Sprinter of Europe in 2001, the dual Group One winner died on Sunday morning.

Coolmore has confirmed that news of the tragic loss in a statement:

"In spite in intense veterinary treatment throughout the day and night, he died at 6.15am this morning (Sunday)," the statement said.

Only two weeks ago it was announced that Mozart would be standing at a fee of $49,500 at Coolmore's property at Jerry's Plains in New South Wales.

A son of Danehill, Mozart will be best remembered for his runaway win in the Group One July Cup at Newmarket, the race regarded as the best sprint in Europe. On that occasion the youngster strided away to win by three and a half lengths.
