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.
