Lexington, Ky. — Unbridled’s Song, the son of 1990 Kentucky Derby winner Unbridled who went on to capture a Breeders’ Cup race and become a prolific sire, died Friday. He was 20.

Taylor Made Stallions, where the horse stood his entire career, said in a statement a large and inoperable mass was discovered in his sinus cavities and around the optic nerves. The horse began showing acute neurological symptoms Thursday and was euthanized.

As a 2-year-old, Unbridled’s Song won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. The next year, he won the Florida Derby and Wood Memorial. He was the 7-2 favorite in the 1996 Kentucky Derby but finished fifth while another Unbridled colt, Grindstone, was first. Unbridled’s Song earned $1,311,800 before retiring to stud in 1997.

Gay Had Positive at Nationals

New York — Sprinter Tyson Gay failed more than one drug test this year, recording one of his positives at the U.S. championships in June, where he won the 100 and 200 meters, The Associated Press learned on Friday.

Earlier this month, Gay revealed he had tested positive in an out-of-competition test he took May 16.

Three people familiar with the case told the AP that Gay had multiple positives this year.

Klinsmann Banned From FInal

Chicago — U.S. soccer coach Jurgen Klinsmann will miss the Gold Cup final Sunday against Panama after drawing a one-game suspension for his tirade during the tournament semifinals.

CONCACAF’s disciplinary committee handed out the punishment Friday night. Klinsmann was ejected in the 87th minute Wednesday in a 3-1 victory over Honduras after protesting several no-calls involving his players.

He slammed a ball into the ground and could be seen yelling and gesturing angrily in the direction of the referee.

He later apologized, saying he’d acted out of frustration.

While the U.S. players would prefer to have Klinsmann on the bench, they say his absence won’t be a distraction.
