Mind Games dies aged 20.

MIND Games, the sire of last season's Prix de l'Abbaye winner Tangerine Trees, died in his paddock at Bearstone Stud yesterday. The son of Puissance was 20, writes Nancy Sexton.

Retired to stand alongside his sire at Bearstone in 1997, Mind Games has sired the winners of 389 races and more than pounds 3.2 million in prize-money.

As well as Tangerine Trees, his best runners include Richmond Stakes winner Always Hopeful and Queen Mary Stakes heroine Romantic Myth.

"Mind Games was the horse who put Bearstone Stud on the map and we owe him a great deal," said stud owner Terry Holdcroft.

Mind Games was trained by Jack Berry to win seven races including the Brocklesby and Norfolk Stakes, as well as two renewals of the Temple Stakes at three and four.
