Last Masterpiece, Jr., was put down on Sunday, July 27, 2003, as a result of injuries sustained from a fall into a creek on July 3. He was recuperating well from the physical injuries, but succumbed due to an infection from bacteria in the creek. He was one of the remaining line bred Ebony Masterpiece stallions and had been bred sparingly to a few mares during his lifetime. He will be gone, but not forgotten by those who loved him.
