Midland Acres has announced with deep regret and profound sadness the untimely passing of stallion Feelin Friskie.
On Monday (November 14), Feelin Friskie was taken to Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine for evaluation and treatment of colic. Upon his arrival, he was taken into surgery and found to have an inoperable condition. He was medically euthanized.
Feelin Friskie has been an outstanding sire with many stakes winners throughout the years in the Buckeye State and beyond.
He is responsible for producing Ohio Sire Stakes champions Igottafeelinfran (1:51.1, $560,115), Crown Time Keeper (1:53, $276,965) and Feelin Lika Winner (1:51.1, $300,826). He also fathered such regional standouts as Friskie Adam (1:52.2, $204,936) and Nobles Finesse (1:54.1, $296,436).
Standing at Midland Acres since 2008, Feelin Friskie, is owned by that facility and Wayne Whebby. Through the 2016 racing season, his offspring have amassed $11,114,917, he has 36 $100,000 winners and, in 2016 alone, his foals have collected more than $1.92 million.
Midland Acres and Mr. Whebby would like to thank all the people responsible for believing in Feelin Friskie. Their support of his stallion career was essential to the horse that amassed $784,210 (U.S.) during his time on the track. His sire power and presence in Ohio will be greatly missed.
Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the connections of Feelin Friskie.
