Peter Blyth of Clifton Stud broke the sad news.

He said, “Mambo In Seattle passed away last week here at Clifton Stud in KZN.

Mambo had to be euthanised last Wednesday having broken his tibia (the bone
between the stifle and the hock) in the night in his stable.

He was found standing and no signs of being cast. His hind leg was seen to
be dangling.

As a farewell to Mambo, his son Royal Agility won again in Hong Kong last Friday. He has won two races in his last three starts in Hong Kong.

He was ridden by Lyle Hewitson winning by 4,75 lengths.”

Mambo In Seattle produced 12 individual stakes winners, including his only Grade 1 winner, the Duncan Howells-trained Same Jurisdiction, who won the Grade 1 Thekwini Stakes, the Grade 1 Garden Province Stakes and the Grade 3 Flamboyant Stakes. She also finished second in both the Grade 1 SA Fillies Classic and the Grade 1 Majorca Stakes and among her other stakes places was a fourth place finish in the Group 2 Sceptre Stakes in Britain

His best son was likely the Paul Peter-trained Majestic Mambo, who won the Listed Sea Cottage Stakes, was 2nd in the Grade 1 Daily News 2000 (Grade 1), 2nd in the Group 3 Abu Dhabi Championship, 3rd in the Group 2 Singspiel Stakes in Dubai and 4th in the Durban July.

Royal Agility was known as Vontreo in South Africa and this Sean Tarry-trained horse finished a narrow third to Hawwaam in the Grade 3 Tony Ruffell Stakes before departing for Hong Kong.
