I was so sad to hear this. The first report I heard was that he broke a leg in his stall. Now they are saying that a necropsy is being done so there must have been more to it.
I knew Marquetry as a young stallion and always liked him. I now have an 8 year old son with a similar personality and appearance. I am glad Marquetry was able to spend his last couple of years at Old Friends where he was not doubt spoiled rotten.
They said he had an accident in his stall during a storm and broke his femur. So I am going to hazard a guess that maybe he was spooked and either kicked the wall or slipped and fell and that was that. Such a shame.
