Terrible rumour going around at the moment that the mighty mare Sunline has Laminitis badly,if true it doesn't look good for the star she would be in terrible pain...I hope it is just a very nasty rumour.

Media reports on Saturday that New Zealand-bred mare Sunline (NZ), who dominated racing around 1999/2000, was under a serious life threatening laminitis problem have been exgaggerated according to her vet Ivan Bridge.

Sunline, who made inducted into the Australian Hall Of Fame in 2002 following her epic race track career, was reported to be having complications following surgery for colic earlier this year,and that she is suffering from laminitis that might have required a decison on her ongoing well-being.


However, Bridge, speaking on New Zealand NewsTalkZB Radio - newstalkzb.co.nz -  on Saturday, said that Sunline's conditon was improving, and that her condition had, in fact, been much worse some six weeks ago.

Bridge said that international experts on the conditon, which can cause a horse to founder and ulimately lead to being put down, had been consulted, and the mare was recovering.


Sunline, 13, by Desert Sun out of Songline, was bred by Susan Archer and Michael Martin. She was twice the Australian Horse Of The Year and she campaigned in New Zealand, Australia, Dubai and Hong Kong.
She won the WFA WS Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley twice, in 1999 and 2000, as a four and five -year-old respectively, and she was second the following year to Northerly. Her 1999 winning time of 2.05.40 has not been surpassed since.


Sunline won 32 of 48 starts in her career spanning 1998 to 2002. Her victories included the two Cox Plates, and a Group I Hong Kong International Mile (1600m) at Sha Tin, and two Group I Doncaster Handicaps over 1600m at Randwick in 1999 and 2002. I

In the latter she carried 58kg defeating Shogun Lodge and Defier, such was her racing ability. She earned stakes of $11.3 million.

She is only young MagiC, she will hopefully have plenty of time to get a good one. Hopefully she gets through this and has plenty of filly foals.

Sunline's Son Captures Maiden Victory

Sun Ruler, the $NZ2 million son of champion Sunline, broke through for his first win in a 1600m maiden at Avondale on Friday.

The Zabeel colt, ridden by top New Zealand jockey Samantha Spratt and trained by Stephen McKee who co-prepared the mighty Sunline with his father Trevor, was favourite and a two-length victor in the Auckland Owners' Association Maiden.

The three-year-old had been placed in four of his first five starts.

His half-sister Sunstrike, a four-year-old mare by Rock Of Gibraltar and also trained by McKee, has had seven starts for a win over 1200m at Te Aroha in February and three minor placings.

Sun Ruler earned $NZ6,250 for his win, leaving high-profile owner Don Ha still more than $NZ1.9 million shy of what he paid for the colt at the 2007 Karaka Sale.

"Sunline's foals are slow maturing and he's by Zabeel," McKee told the New Zealand Herald.

"He's just starting to learn what it's all about, he's been building up to a win for a while."

Sunline won 32 of her 48 starts and was placed on another 12 occasions for prizemoney in excess of $A11.35 million.

She was Australia's Horse of the Year three times and won the Cox Plate in 1999 and 2000.

The win of the Zabeel - Sunline last Friday was impressive and indicated that all he needed was time.
The 2yo Rock of Gibralter had a trial at Avondale today. Like her older siblings she is not an early type.

Laminitis claims New Zealand champion


At midday on September 29th, 1995 a filly was born in Cambridge, the heart of New Zealand breading country. Almost 14 years later, on May 1st 2009 a Great Legend was laid to rest…
It is with great sadness that the McKee family today announces that champion racemare Sunline has lost her long battle with Laminitis

Despite exhausting all avenues to save her, the family was left with no option but to have her humanely put down.

World Laminitis expert Ric Redden DVM from the USA, who has 35 years experience dealing with the equine illness visited Sunline and the McKee family on Monday. “It was Ric’s advice that she had lost all quality of life due to the debilitating disease,” said co-owner Trevor McKee.

Son and co-owner Stephen McKee also commented; “She was a huge influence on our lives and we will miss her terribly. We have taken the only decision available, acting on the best advice that could be obtained worldwide. Sunline will forever be a part of Australasian racing folklore and it has been a privilege being associated with such a champion, who we will always consider a part of our family.”

Sunline will live on in the hearts and souls of all those whose lives she has touched – long after she is gone. She was a symbol of hope, courage, greatness and worth. And watching her be her best made us all want to be better. It was one of the reasons we all loved her so much and were so captivated by her.

Sunline was the winner of 13 Group I races, banking a phenomenal $NZ13,700,607 from success in 32 of her 48 starts.

Her final resting place will be at New Zealand’s premier racecourse, Ellerslie, where a memorial will be erected in her honour.
