Libertini passes at trackwork

The Cummings trained Libertini sadly passed away at trackwork after suffering a heart attack on Tuesday morning.

Owned by Gerry Harvey and trained by Anthony Cummings the mare was being readied for a return to the track a week on Saturday in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes where she would be ridden by James McDonald.

“It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beautiful mare Libertini who suffered a heart attack this morning at trackwork.” Baramul Stud tweeted. 

“She was loved by all who spent time with her and we will miss her dearly.”

“Our thoughts are with the team at @ACummingsracing @LoMcdonald93”

Libertini had been one of the most gifted sprinters to grace the turf in recent seasons however the daughter of I Am Invincible was plagued by injury throughout her career.

The five-year-old had 16 starts, recording five wins and five placings, earning just shy of $2 million.

Libertini’s biggest wins came in the form of the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes and Furious Stakes during her three-year-old season and the Group 2 Premiere Stakes in 2020 when she beat home Classique Legend who went on to win The Everest on his next start.

Libertini also placed three times at Group 1 level, in the 2019 Coolmore Stud Stakes, the 2020 VRC Sprint Classic behind Bivouac and Nature Strip and the 2021 William Reid Stakes.

The mare ran in The Everest twice finishing eighth on each occasion in 2020 and 2021.
