Darby Dan Farm stallion Meadowlake, whose dam died May 23.
Suspicious Native, whose unbeaten son Meadowlake is the sire of champion Meadow Star and 46 other stakes winners, died May 23 at Robert Courtney's Crestfield Farm near Lexington. The 30-year-old mare was buried next to Meadow Star's dam, Inreality Star, at the farm.
Bred by Ralph Wilson's Oxford Stable, Suspicious Native (Raise a Native--Be Suspicious, by Porterhouse) was bought by Courtney for Jaime S. Carrion for $70,000 at the 1979 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. During her career, Suspicious Native produced 15 foals, including additional stakes winner Leo Castelli and stakes-placed Shamrock McGroder and West Coast Native. She had been pensioned since 1994.
