LEXINGTON, Ky. — The 2006 Preakness Stakes winner Bernardini was euthanized at Jonabell Farm because of laminitis, Darley American announced Friday. Bernardini was 18. “Bernardini was one of a kind,” said Godolphin USA director of farm operations Michael Banahan. “From the day he was born, he exuded class. He was that crop’s best foal, best yearling, and best racehorse. His brilliance was only surpassed by his wonderful character. He will be sorely missed by all on the farm but especially by his handler for the past 15 years, Philip Hampton. It was an honor to be a custodian of this classic-winning stallion whose legacy will live long as a broodmare sire.”
