MIINNEHOMA, winner of the 1994 Grand National for Wellington trainer Martin Pipe, has died at the age of 29.
The horse, owned by comedian Freddie Starr, was an 11-year-old when he was ridden to victory by jockey Richard Dunwoody.
Martin Pipe's son David, who has taken over as trainer at their Nicholashayne yard, said: "He was a wonderful old horse - a real character who remained at the yard until the end.
"He was a great champion and will be missed by all associated with him."
