Nasty Affair, a stakes winner/producer, was euthanized March 9 because of complications from the infirmities of old age. The 22-year-old daughter of Nasty and Bold was owned by Steven Sansone, president of Long Grove Bloodstock.
An ultra-consistent racemare for Donald J. Lopez, Nasty Affair won or placed in 22 of 25 starts racing exclusively in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic region. She captured seven stakes, placed in six others, and earned $260,383 while trained by Daniel J. Lopez.
As a broodmare, Nasty Affair produced 13 named foals, eight of which were winners, including stakes winners Donna Doo and Mountain Affair. A graded winner, Mountain Affair and Donna Doo were both stakes producers. Nasty Affair's other offspring included graded stakes-placed Hell Cat and stakes producer Shaunlee, plus an unnamed Hold That Tiger yearling filly.
Nasty Affair, who was bred in Kentucky by Robert I. Green and produced from the Seventh Landing mare L'Affaire, was buried at Indian Creek Farm near Paris, Ky.
