MSU loses stallion with top pedigree

Mississippi State University stallion Minister Slew, a grandson of 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew, was euthanized on July 11 after fracturing a leg during a sudden thunderstorm. Donated to the university in 2002, Minister Slew was alone in his paddock when he apparently spooked or took a misstep during the storm.
