Miss Alleged dies after giving birth


Miss Alleged, winner of the 1991 Breeders' Cup Turf at Churchill Downs, died Feb. 28 from complications after giving birth to a Miesque's Son foal at Fares Farms' Haras de Manneville in Sannerville, France, The Blood-Horse website reported Tuesday.

By Alleged out of the Hoist the Flag mare Miss Tusculum, Miss Alleged was trained to her Breeders' Cup triumph by Pascal Bary, who also engineered her victory in the Group 2 Prix de Malleret as a 3-year-old in 1990. She was the highweighted 3-year-old French filly on the International Classification in 1990 and Europe's champion older filly or mare in 1991.

Following the Breeders' Cup Turf, her owners at Fares Farms turned her over to trainer Charlie Whittingham, for whom she won the Grade 1 Hollywood Turf Cup, clinching Eclipse Award honors as America's best filly or mare on turf in 1991.

As a broodmare, Miss Alleged has produced three winners from 11 foals of racing age.
