Classic winner A.P. Indy was the 1992 Horse of the Year.
A.P. Indy, the 1992 Horse of the Year and one of the world’s great stallions, died peacefully Feb. 21 at his longtime home at Lane’s End near Versailles, Ky.
Bill Farish of Lane’s End said everyone at the farm was leaning on one another on a difficult Friday. He noted how much A.P. Indy meant to his father, William S. Farish, who bred A.P. Indy with William Kilroy and later came back to own the horse as part of a partnership.
“Anytime Dad visits the farm, his first stop is to go visit A.P. Indy,” Bill Farish said, adding that Friday was a tough day for his dad.
A.P. Indy, a son of Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew, was the leading sire twice, leading broodmare sire once, and among the leaders on both lists multiple times.
