Dams of Unbridled, Honour and Glory Dead

Gana Facil, dam of 1990 Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Unbridled, and Fair to All, dam of grade I winner Honour and Glory, have died. Gana Facil, a 25-year-old daughter of Le Fabuleux, is buried at John Magnier and partners' Coolmore Stud in Ireland. Twenty-year-old Fair to All resided in North America.

Both Unbridled (by Fappiano) and Honour and Glory (by Relaunch) developed into important sires. Unbridled, who also won the 1990 Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) the year he was champion 3-year-old male for Frances A. Genter, sired several champions among his 44 stakes winners. He stood at the Hancock family's Claiborne Farm near Paris, Ky., prior to his death in 2001.

Honour and Glory, whose big win came in the 1996 Metropolitan Handicap (gr. I) as a 3-year-old for Coolmore associate Michael Tabor, has sired 27 stakes winners. He stands at Ashford.

Gana Facil was bred in Florida by James and Virginia Binger's Tartan Farms and won six of 19 races. She and Unbridled were bought by Frances A. Genter Stable at the Tartan-Nerud Dispersal at Fasig-Tipton Kentucky in November of 1987. Gana Facil was purchased for $275,000, and Unbridled, who was a weanling at the time, went for $70,000.
In 1995, Magnier bought Gana Facil for $1.35 million at the Keeneland November breeding stock sale from Gainesway Farm, agent for Genter. Gana Facil was in foal to Seeking the Gold.

Gana Facil, who was produced from the In Reality mare Charedi, produced seven named foals, five of which were winners, including Unbridled's younger full brother Cahill Road, a grade I winner. A daughter, Orseno, developed into a stakes producer.

Unraced Fair to All, who was bred in Virginia by Carolyn Nicewonder, produced 10 named foals, five of which were winners, including stakes-placed Merciful Judge.
