WinStar Farm stallion Pioneerof nile died suddenly today, the farm announced. The 13-year-old son of Empire Maker —Star of Goshen, by Lord at War, bred a mare this morning and started acting uncomfortable once he was back in his stall. He was en route to the clinic when he died.

"We are all extremely saddened by the loss of Pioneerof the Nile," said WinStar Farm's Elliott Walden. "He was a superior physical specimen, a Triple Crown sire, and a unique personality. All of us at WinStar are heartbroken."

A multiple grade 1-winning millionaire on the racetrack, Pioneerof the Nile is the sire of two 2-year-old male Eclipse Award winners and two Breeders' Cup winners from his first four crops to race—Horse of the Year and Triple Crown winner American Pharoah and Classic Empire .
