Very sorry to hear this. I loved Smoke Glacken and his offspring.

A sad day as I really liked that old boy. I guess you could call him a real blue collar sire. He probably wasn't going to give you a classic horse, but his progeny went out and ran hard and often, picking up a lot of checks for their owners.

How sad, I was a huge fan of Smoke Glacken, he sired some tough, fast horses. Some of my favourites were Carthage, Delaunay, and On Fire Baby.

Loved all of those, and don't forget Read The Footnotes and Pink Viper.

Question: Does anyone know the significance of his name, if any? Glacken is a surname found in the United States, so I'm wondering if he was named after a member of that family whose nickname was "Smoke." Just speculation on my part.

Mahubah-

I bred a mare to Smoke Glacken years ago. So I read and researched everything Smoke Glacken.
As I recall, Smoke Glacken was a real person. He was a boiler/furnace repair man or maker of boilers/furnaces.
Sorry I could not be more helpful.
