A. P. Assay, a half-sister to millionaire Came Home out of the Clever Trick mare Nice Assay, was not in foal at the time of her death.
Grade II winner A. P. Assay, whose yearling filly by Gone West sold for $1.6 million at the Keeneland September yearling sale, was euthanized Sept. 27 after breaking her neck at William S. Farish's Lane's End Farm near Versailles, Ky. "There was a storm that went through here," said farm manager Mike Cline. "We suspect she might have fallen and broken it. There were no marks on her."Nine-year-old A. P. Assay, a member of the first crop of foals by Lane's End stallion A.P. Indy, raced as a homebred for John Toffan and Trudy McCaffery, winning five of 14 starts and earning $381,691. She won the A Gleam (gr. II) and Desert Stormer Handicaps, both at Hollywood Park.
