Repriced, one of the last remaining sons of Roberto, died on Friday, January 27 at Darby Dan Farm of an apparent heart attack. He was 24.

"It’s the real end of an era, with the passing of Repriced, he represented a connection to the golden era of American stallion," said Darby Dan’s John Phillips. "It’s well known that my grandfather John W. Galbreath named Roberto for the great Pittsburgh Pirates right fielder, Roberto Clemente. Both Robertos were exceptional in their fields and Repriced was a wonderful link to those great years. Though Repriced was largely retired, we are all sad not to see him enjoying his time in his paddock."

Owned by Leonard Lavin’s Glen Hill Stable, the strapping chestnut, standing 17 hands, Repriced was out of Quack’s multiple stakes-Producing daughter Feature Price, dam also of Group or Graded winners Top Rung, GrayCashmere, and Undercut. Repriced raced primarily on the West Coast where he was a stakes performer for three consecutive years, highlighted by a 6-length victory in the Oceanside Stakes at Del Mar. He retired to stand at Dr. William O. Reed’s Mare Haven Farm in 1995, then moved to Darby Dan in November, 2000.

Through racing of January 26, Repriced had sired 15 stakes winners and earners of $11.9 million, including Regret S. (G3) winner Rich In Spirit, Pucker Up (G3) winner Closeout, Carey Memorial (G3) winner Spruce Run, Kent Breeders’ Cup (G3) winner No Inflation, Sweetest Chant (G3) winner Capital Request.
