  Animals, Sports

Overdose was born on April 2, 2005 in Nottinghamshire, Great Britain, and died on July 1, 2015.

He was a Hungarian Thoroughbred racehorse.

During his career, he was victorious in sixteen of his nineteen races.

Overdose was an English-bred and was sold at Tattersalls December Yearling Sales in November 2006 for just 2,000 guineas (£2,100).

His sire was a miler called Starborough and he was out of Our Poppet (IRE) by Warning.

Overdose was a half-brother of three winners.

His owner, Zoltán Mikóczy purchased Overdose only by chance and has been quoted as saying “I just put my hand up for fun, I like the excitement of the horse auctions.

I thought no horse can go this cheap and surely somebody else would bid.

He’s short and I’d say kind of ugly, so of course nobody wanted him.”

Overdose passed away at age 10 in July 2015.
