    Default So long great man - R-Saluut II

    It is with heavy heart that I report that the DWB stallion R-Saluut II who was approved for AHHA has passed away. Born in 1982 this 31 year old stallion was once the most winniest stallion in our History, winning I believe over $400,000 worth of GP's in his career. He was ridden by Margie Engle for most of his career. I also believe he was awarded sire of the year a couple of times as well. I know he will live on, as I just bred one of his daughters two years ago to produce a nice 9/7 foal last year.
    My best wishes go out to Gail Maslyk and Dr. William Ley who lived with him after his retirement from sport.

    RIP great man.

    How sad, but at 31 what can one say other then RIP, indeed.
    He's the dam sire of my best producing broodmare.
    Wish I had more pictures or video of him.

    I remember Margie Goldstein Engle riding Saluut II with a cast on her foot at the Detroit Grand Prix class. Saluut II was a awesome horse. Made it look easy.

    I'm gobsmacked to hear that Saluut was still with us. It seems ages ago that he anchored Margie's string of fabulous greys. He was a genetic treasure chest and a fabulous athlete. It's so cool that he got to enjoy a long and happy retirement.

    Rest in Peace! A great sire! We had 2 Saluut babies, both are great horses.
    Impossible is nothing.

    I am sorry about his passing, what a grand horse he was, and what a grand age.
    My condolences to his people.

    Well that's a bummer. Just received a daughter in for marketing, saw she was by the big white stallion I fantasized over in my youth, went to google wondering if he could possibly still be with us, and this was one of the top results. It's like I just missed him....

    Margie's grey stallions could be the icons of my young riding life. Happy to know he lived out a long and I assume properly glorious life, and condolences to his loved ones. What a legend.

    RIP wonderful guy. I knew him in his earlier days & knew several of his daughters. He will be missed, but how great that he lived to 31!

    I remember watching him and Margie when I was a kid dreaming of all things horsey. I have a VHS tape of a Grand Prix that was on TV in the 90's and the top three in the class were Gem Twist with Greg Best, Saluut II with Margie and Northern Magic with Beezie (then) Patton. I wore that tape out watching it over and over again.

    It is awesome that he made it to 31! Rest in Peace.
