Grade II winner Caller I. D. died Aug. 28 of a ruptured stomach at Three Way Farm near Nashville, Ill. The 17-year-old son of Phone Trick was purchased earlier in the month by Gregory Mathis and Shirley Ness, who are the majority owners of the farm. He was scheduled to stand in 2007 for a fee of $2,000.
Caller I. D., who is out of the Ramsinga mare Plagiarizing, has sired 19 stakes winners, 19 stakes-placed runners, and the earners of $15.1 million. His added-money winners include such multiple stakes winners as Best of K C, Picture I. D., and Call Her Magic.
One of the top 2-year-olds of his year, Caller I. D. captured the Arlington-Washington Futurity (gr. II), as well as the Saratoga Special (gr. II) and Sanford (gr. III) Stakes. He last stood at Regal Heir Farms near Grantville, Pa.
Three Way also suffered the loss of farm stallion Irgun earlier this year when he died May 23 of a ruptured stomach.
