GUTHRIE, OK—APRIL 30, 2019—Lazy E Ranch has reported that Volcom, a longtime stallion at the Guthrie, Oklahoma facility, was humanely euthanized today due to continuing effects of laminitis.
The accomplished son of First Down Dash-Runaway Vike by Runaway Winner, owned and raced by P.K. Thomas of Weatherford, Texas, was a multiple grade 1 winner, a champion sire and an All American Futurity(G1) sire.
"Lazy E Ranch felt very fortunate to have had the opportunity to stand this outstanding stallion for P.K. during his stallion career. If one appreciates a true 440 yard sire, he was certainly that stallion. He had a winner of the All-American Futurity and three other finalists - all with only 175 starters. Most stallions go all their life and never have one "make the big dance" and he had four. His ability to get a horse to stay 440 yards was proven and as we all know that is the most coveted attribute a stallion can possess", said Butch Wise, manager at Lazy E Ranch.
