Etc. . . .


Juddmonte Farm's famed broodmare Razyana, dam of the influential sire Danehill as well as other graded stakes winners, died last weekend at age 23 after foaling a Distant View colt, who survived. Razyana produced Danehill, a son of Danzig, in 1986 after her first mating, and the colt eventually became the flagship stallion for Coolmore Stud, with his greatest successes coming at the global operation's Australian farm. . . . Raymond J. Gambone Sr., a Pennsylvania-based horseman, died Friday at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital of cancer at age 56.
