Rough Quest - farewell old friend

Rough Quest - farewell old friend

It is with great sadness we have to announce the death of Rough Quest yesterday at the grand old age of 30. He was the longest living Grand National winner and provided Andrew Wates and his family with their best racing moment by winning the race in 1996. Having had a very healthy and happy retirement at Henfold, he recently developed an infection which he was not recovering from and in the best interests of the horse we did not want him to suffer. It is a testament to his constitution that before this problem he had hardly ever needed to see a vet during his retirement. He was still receiving birthday cards, regular fan mail and vists from Mick Fitzgerald and others who fondly remember his day of glory and he always enjoyed the carrots and polos that were given to him by his visitors.
