Wando (horse)

Wando (February 23, 2000 – January 22, 2014) is a Thoroughbred racehorse who won the Canadian Triple Crown in 2003. Wando was bred by Gustav Schickedanz at his farm Schomberg Farms in Schomberg, Ontario and ridden mainly by jockey Patrick Husbands.[1] The chestnut stallion raced with moderate success as a four-year-old, and was then retired on 12 May 2005 to stand at stud at Lane's End Farm near Lexington, Kentucky. In 2011, the stallion returned to Schomberg,[1] where he died of a heart attack on 20 January 2014.[2] He is buried at Schomberg Farms.[2]
