Olympic Encore was humanely euthanized on May 2, 2013, at Ballentine Farms in Fuquay Varina, N.C. due to complications of colic. Recently purchased by Nancy and Caroline Elliott, as a mount for Caroline, Olympic Encore was foaled in 1995 in Tyler, Texas. He was sired by Olympic Generator and was out of a Triple Threat daughter. His long and illustrious show career stands as a testimony to the endurance of the breed.
