I wonder if they collected some of his semen prior to this sad event. If not, it's a shame. He was such a wonderful horse that it would have been nice if there were foals who carried his wonderful personality, big heart and lovely conformation. :(
They did in fact collect semen and he has several foals, one of which is owned by Eric Lamaze.
Yikes, it's so sad when a horse dies at a show. I was at an expo once and an arabian dropped dead in an english class. I would absolutely hate for any of my horses to die that way, I would feel so guilty.
