Black Tie Affair The Horse
Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 1, 2010
Kentucky, USA

Black Tie Affair, the 1991 Horse of the Year, was humanely euthanized today at Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Facility in Georgetown, KY.

The 24-year-old stallion was suffering from Laminitis, and Old Friends founder and president Michael Blowen and veterinarian Dr. Douglas Byars made the decision early this morning.

Black Tie Affair had been pensioned at Old Friends since July 2009.

In 1991, the steel-gray son of Miswaki was victorious in six consecutive graded stakes for owner Jeff Sullivan and trainer Ernie T. Poulos, including the Stephen Foster (GR III), the Washington Park Handicap (GRII), and Philip H. Iselin Handicap (GRI). Black Tie Affair capped off his banner year with a gate-to-wire upset win in the Breeders' Cup Classic, conquering a field that included Twilight Agenda, Strike the Gold, and Unbridled. For his efforts he was voted champion older male and Horse of the Year.
