It is with great regret that the Aga Khan Studs announce the death of LINAMIX at the age of 29.

As a racehorse, LINAMIX carried the pink and grey colors of his breeder, Jean-Luc Lagardère, and notably won the Gr.1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains before being retired for covering duties to Haras du Val Henry in Normandy in 1991. He quickly established himself as a remarkable stallion, producing no less than eight Stakes performers for his owner in his first crop, including the Gr.1 Prix Jacques Le Marois winner Miss Satamixa.

LINAMIX left his mark on the French thoroughbred breeding and amongst his most notable offspring are the 1995 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner Sagamix and Group 1 winners such as Slickly, Fragrant Mix, Cherry Mix, Carlotamix, MANIGHAR, Alpine Rose, etc.

LINAMIX was acquired by the Aga Khan Studs upon the passing of Jean-Luc Lagardère and was retired from covering duties in 2007. His legacy lives on through his sons, which include stallions Martaline, Al Namix and young sire Rajsaman. LINAMIX regularly ranks amongst the leading broodmare sires and his daughters, who proved to be excellent broodmares, have produced the likes of Prix de Diane winner VALYRA, Oaks winner Blue Bunting, Group 1 winners such as Rosanara, Montmartre, Natagora, and more recently Champion sprinter Muhaarar and high class stayer VAZIRABAD.
