Landslide p,3, 1:54.1 ($162,835), the winner of the 1981 Adios for the Landslide Stable, was found dead in his paddock at a farm about 40 miles from Lexington, Ky., on Wednesday morning (Aug. 27). Landslide, who was 25, was born at Stoner Creek Stud in Paris, Ky.

A partnership that included the horse's trainer-driver, Ed Lohmeyer, Bob Tucker of Stonegate Farm, John Stoddard, and Bill Simon, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury during the presidency of Richard Nixon, owned Landslide during his racing career. They had bought the colt at Tattersalls for $290,000, making him the highest priced yearling in 1979. He was a Meadow Skipper half brother to the accomplished Silent Majority.

Landslide stood at stud for many years, siring the winners of $30.9 million. His best offspring was undoubtedly Run The Table p,3, 1:51 ($1.1 million), who also won the Adios.
