Windsor Park Stud reported that on Saturday morning Champion Sire Thorn Park (AUS) was laid to rest at the Stud at Cambridge after succumbing to a long-running and deep-seated infection in the navicular bone of his near hind foot.
Over the past few months every effort has been made by veterinarians and staff to overcome the infection, which also gave rise to laminitis in his off hind foot.
While good progress had been made in the lamanitic foot unfortunately the infection in his near hind foot proved insurmountable a statement from the Stud said.
