Cambridge Stud reported eight weeks ago that Tavistock suffered a life threatening injury in a freak paddock accident.
Although he made significant progress from the initial injury, he sustained secondary complications following further surgery last week and was put down on vets advice this afternoon.
Cambridge Stud have paid special thanks to their vet team of Dr. Rob Hitchcock and Dr. Alanna Zantingh of Cambridge Equine along with Dr. Ric Redden from Kentucky who all made extraordinary efforts to save him.
The Cambridge Stud staff have been nothing less than heroic in what has been an intensely difficult season for them.
Tavistock was the sire of 19 individual stakes winners including Group Ones winners, Werther, Volkstock ‘n’ Barrell, Tarzino and Tavago.
Tavistock’s legacy will live on through his many sons and daughters. He cast a giant shadow at Cambridge and he will be sorely missed.
