My Memoirs, Belmont second, dies


My Memoirs, second to A.P. Indy in the 1992 Belmont Stakes, has died in Colorado. He was 17.

My Memoirs stood at George and Susan Wafer's Wafer Thoroughbred Ranch in Elizabeth, Colo. He was found dead in his paddock on June 24.

"We don't know what happened to him," George Wafer said.

The English-bred My Memoirs came to the United States in in 1992 when Jeff Siegel and Barry Irwin's Team Valor Stable purchased him privately after his victory in England's Dee Stakes. My Memoirs lost the Belmont to A.P. Indy by three-quarters of a length, with Pine Bluff third.

My Memoirs, out of the Track Spare mare Julip, had a career record of 3-2-1 from 14 starts with $229,799 in earnings. As a stallion, his best runner is stakes-placed Lonesome Cowboy.
