Utmost Respect, leading European sprinter, dies


Utmost Respect, one of Europe's leading sprinters, died Sunday of peritonitis. A gelded 5-year-old son of Danetime, Utmost Respect was a four-time group-race winner going six furlongs. He had won his last three starts, the Group 3 Greenlands Stakes at the Curragh, the Group 2 Duke of York Stakes at York, and the Group 3 Prix de Seine-et-Oise at Maisons-Laffitte.
