The Thoroughbred Devon Lane, a sire of Quarter Horses, died May 21 from a terminal cardiovascular event while in the breeding shed.

The 19-year-old stallion was owned by a syndicate headed by Lucas Racing Inc. of New Market, Maryland and was standing at TNL Farms Inc. at Bosque, New Mexico.

Devon Lane (TB) was a son of legendary Thoroughbred Storm Cat out of the Relaunch mare To The Hunt. He was a half brother to multiple-Grade 1 winning, millionaire Thoroughbreds Stellar Jayne and Starrer.

Devon Lane (TB) made one start in a Quarter Horse race in 1996, finishing third in an 870-yard race at Ruidoso.

Devon Lane (TB) sired 11 Quarter Horse crops to race, including 52 winners from 127 starters, that have earned more than $1.7 million, including stakes winner Devons Easy Lane ($357,276) and 2004 All American Futurity (G1) third-place finisher Devons Signature ($166,965).

Including his Thoroughbred foals, he was the sire of earners of more than $10.4 million, including River’s Prayer (TB, $921,958), according to his syndicate.

“The Syndicate wishes to thank Terry and Nan Lane and their entire staff at TNL Farm for their dedication to, and love for , ‘Devon’ through the years. He will be missed by all,” said syndicate manager Dan Lucas in a statement.
