Cohn, owner and breeder, dead


Seymour Cohn, a prominent New York owner and breeder for more than 50 years, died Thursday morning in New York City. He was 92.

The retired chairman of the board of a real estate investment company, Sylvan Lawrence Co., Cohn once owned more than 200 racehorses and broodmares. His best horse was Kashatreya, who won the 2000 Fall Highweight Handicap at Aqueduct Racetrack and the Hollie Hughes Handicap in both 1999 and 2000.

At the time of his death, Cohn stood three stallions and had cut back on his racing stock.

In addition to Kashatreya, other stakes winners owned by Cohn included Cannon Shell, Chasin' Wimmin, Flying Skipper, Light Up New York, Pentelis, Putting Green, and Stolen Zeal.

Funeral services were scheduled for Sunday at 9 a.m. in Forest Hills, N.Y.
