It has been announced that Hall of Fame broodmare Stienams Place has passed away.

Stienams Place passed on Saturday night (Feb. 22) at Kentuckiana Farms in Lexington due to complications from colic. She was 26.

A daughter of Artsplace, Stienams Place hailed from a successful filly family and continued the line by producing the winners of $4.6 million. But first, she was top stakes winner on the track. As a three-year-old she won the Breeders Crown, Jugette and Garnsey Memorial while racing for owners Barry Guariglia, Peter Goulazian and James Greenwald and trainer Bruce Riegle. Jack Moiseyev drove the filly to her greatest victories.

After taking a mark of 1:50.4 in 1997 and banking $1,402,301 in purse winnings, Stienams Place was retired to life as a broodmare at Kentuckiana Farms, which became partners in the mare with Guariglia's Green Mountain Farm.

Stienams Place immediately began continuing the success of her maternal line, which began with $1.3 million winner Stienam and continued with her Nihilator-sired daughter Stienams Girl, the dam of Stienams Place. Stienams Place first foal was the filly Donkeys Can Talk, and later daughters were Showherthemoney p, 1:49 ($871,161) and Put On A Show p, 1:47.3 ($2,406,628).

She has produced 13 foals, with 10 starters earning $4,675,536 thus far. Her 2018 yearling, a colt by Somebeachsomewhere, was purchased as a yearling for $100,000 by Winchester Baye Acres.

Stienams Place was buried next to Kentuckiana's pacing stallion Jate Lobell.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the connections of Stienams Place.

RIP to this wonderful mare. She sure left quite the legacy.

Stienams Place definitely has a soft spot in my heart. I loved her as a race filly. I purchased her first foal, Donkeys Can Talk, and followed her foals over time and purchased Dolphins Can Talk then Put On A Show and The Show Returns. By far the best family I myself have ever had. Really sorry to hear of her passing.
