Marvin's Faith (Ire)was euthanized yesterday at Tranquility Farm because of his declining health due to cancer. He was 20 years old. Marvin was a fabulous runner in his day, and raced 29 times with six wins including the Gr.2 Elkhorn Stakes at Keeneland where he established a new record for a mile and an eighth on the turf; the Gr.3 La Jolla Handicap at Del Mar; and the Gr. 3 Bay Meadows Derby.
Marvin was the kindest horse and he spent twelve years in happy retirement here at Tranquility Farm. Farewell old friend, you will be missed.
