America’s oldest winner of a leg of the Triple Crown – Deputed Testamony – died through the week at the grand old age of 32.
Deputed Testamony, after skipping the Kentucky Derby, took out the Preakness Stakes on 21 May 1983 – the last Maryland bred to win his home state classic.
He ended up winning 11 from 20 and retired to Bonita Farm, whose manager Billy Boniface said: "Up until a few days ago, his health was fine, but grazing him last night I could tell he was telling me it was time."
