It is with a very heavy heart that we must sadly announce that DEMERIT was humanly euthanised 29 July. It was found that he had sustained a fractured tibia.
DEMERIT was the sire of outstanding racehorses Special Reward, Agent Pippa, Double Digit and recent Saturday winners Defiantly and Danny George.
He commenced his successful stud career at Kent and Nina Johnston’s Taunton Vale Stud in 2011.
DEMERIT relocated to Rangeview Stud only 6 weeks ago after the sad death of Kent. Nina Johnston then with some new owners including Rangeview placed him with us to further his career, and he had settled beautifully into his new surroundings.
The son of Lonhro was only 12 years old and set for a busy upcoming season.
Words can’t express our grief at Rangeview Stud.
DEMERIT is a devastating loss for his new owners and the Western Australian breeding and racing industry
