Nappelon, dam of 2007 champion Ginger Punch, died May 31 in Central Kentucky.
Ginger Punch, last year's champion older female, has been retired from racing to become a broodmare for breeder/owner Frank Stronach.
Stronach Stables' Ginger Punch proved why she is a champion against an overmatched field Jan. 26 at Gulfstream Park, romping by 6 3/4 lengths in the $500,000 Sunshine Millions Distaff.
