Pensioned Broodmare Timeless Sue Dies

The 33-year-old mare is the great-granddam of Canadian champion Not Bourbon.

Timeless Sue, a 33-year-old daughter of Timeless Moment, died July 11 at Our Mims Retirement Haven near Paris, Ky.

“This is so unexpected,” said Our Mims Retirement Haven manager Jeanne Mirabito. “Sue danced out of the barn last night. She looked happy, healthy, and young despite her age. We found her in Our Mims’ favorite grazing spot. It looks like she just laid down and died.”

Timeless Sue produced 10 foals, five of which won, including Timeless Girl, the dam of graded stakes winner Bourbon Belle. By Storm Boot, Bourbon Belle is the dam of Canadian champion and Queen’s Plate Stakes winner Not Bourbon .

Timeless Sue, who was produced from the Reflected Glory mare Strella, carved out a record of 7-3-2 from 38 starts. She earned $101,685.

Timeless Sue was bred in Kentucky by J. W. Thompson and Sons.

Timeless Sue arrived at Our Mims Retirement Haven in March 2005. Her 33rd birthday was celebrated April 26 with a carrot cake at the Haven. Timeless Sue was buried in the Haven cemetery.
