Kentucky Derby Winner Gato Del Sol Dies at 28

Stone Farm’s homebred Gato Del Sol, who won the 1982 Kentucky Derby (gr. I) for Arthur B. Hancock III and Leone J. Peters, was euthanized Aug. 7 at Hancock’s Stone Farm near Paris, Ky. due to the infirmities of old age. The 28-year-old pensioned stallion was foaled and raised at Stone and was the first Derby winner to represent the Hancock family.
