Master Command euthanized at age 8


LEXINGTON, Ky. - Multiple graded winner and millionaire Master Command, a third-season sire at Taylor Made Farm, was euthanized Tuesday after an accident. The 8-year-old A.P. Indy horse reared and lost his balance before an afternoon breeding session.

According to a farm announcement, the syndicated horse's condition did not improve after he was taken to Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital.

Master Command was out of Lady Lochinvar, by Lord at War. He bred 134 mares last season and 127 in 2008, his first year at stud.
