Racehorse Rescued From Kansas Slaughter Dies

KSAL StaffMay 29, 2014

A racehorse that drew attention when it was rescued from a Kansas slaughterhouse has been euthanized at a thoroughbred retirement home in Kentucky.

Clever Allemont, the 1985 Rebel Stakes winner, was euthanized on Monday after suffering from colic at the age of 32, according to a news release from Old Friends in Georgetown, Kentucky.

The horse was rescued by several horse lovers in 2008 after a dealer saw him in a slaughter buyer’s pen in Lyons County and called a rescue organization. He was moved to Old Friends in 2009.

The horse won his first six races, including the Rebel Stakes, and was being touted for the Kentucky Derby when he hurt his hoof and was retired to stud.
