Desert God Dies
RSS Feeds Tuesday, December 22, 2015
Desert God has died and has been laid to rest on owner Joe Allen’s farm near Abilene, Texas. He was 24.

An unraced Virginia-bred son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Fappiano, Desert God stood at Fred and Linda Alexander’s A & A Ranch near Anthony, New Mexico, from 2001-13. He did not cover any mares in 2013 and was pensioned due to advancing age and fertility issues, and he lived the last years of his life at Allen’s farm.

Desert God was the leading sire in New Mexico from 2010-12. At the time of his death, he had sired 136 winners and 25 stakes winners from 180 starters. His runners have earned $14,767,822 and include Peppers Pride, who earned $1,066,085 and retired in ’09 holding the modern-day American record for consecutive wins -- 19 -- at the time.

Among Desert God’s other top progeny are multiple stakes winners Our Choice, Fullofenergy, and Train Rider Blues. A 2003 foal, Fullofenergy won the 7 1/2-furlong, $50,000 Land of Enchantment Handicap (R) at Ruidoso Downs every year from 2007-10. Train Rider Blues won five stakes in New Mexico from 2009-10, and he currently stands at co-owner Freda McSwane’s farm in Alto.
