Finally, Paulick ran a story.

Stradivari, After Complications While Recovering From Surgery, Euthanized
“Stradivari initially came through his surgery well but began to experience complications including an infection to his sesamoid,” said Pletcher. “Every effort was made to save him by the staff at Rood and Riddle but unfortunately he ultimately succumbed to his injuries.”

I'm probably not the only one, but after I saw the report here I sent Ray Paulick a message, asking what happened.

Glad you did and glad Paulick acted on it. For some reason, it seems to help to have a death acknowledged.

Lord Gyllene (NZ) at the age of 28. He famously won the Grand National in 1997 after it had to be moved to a monday following a bomb scare on the saturday when it was originally due to be run. He won the race by an impressive 25 lengths.
"Lord Gyllene was fine yesterday, he was a little shaky this morning and just keeled over and died in his stable. He didn't suffer at all and lived to a grand old age.

"He had a long and happy retirement and had two mares for friends. He was chasing them around yesterday and perhaps overdid it.

No explanation, but....I can't help but think that it wasn't natural causes.
