Mary King's Homebred 5* Winning Mare Dies Foaling

Kings Temptress, who won the Rolex Kentucky 4* in 2011 under Mary King (Britain), died Saturday from complications following foaling.

Mary King, an eventing superstar, is also a breeder, and Kings Temptress was one of her own. With her, Mary became the first rider to win the Rolex Kentucky 4* with a homebred horse. Mary's post that she needed a foster mare was shared 5,400 times.

Kings Temptress was by Primitive Rising out of Kings Mistress. She had had eight foals, including five by embryo transfer, some of whom are now successful in competition. She just gave birth to King Vincent, by Van Gogh. "Vinnie" is now with a foster mare.
