DARLINGTON, Md. (AP) - Horse-racing fans are mourning the death of Deputed Testamony, winner of the 1983 Preakness Stakes.
The Baltimore Sun reports that the 32-year-old stallion died Tuesday morning at Bonita farm in Darlington. Farm manager Billy Boniface says the horse lived a good life.
Deputed Testamony was the oldest living winner of a Triple Crown race. He was also the last Maryland-bred horse to win the Preakness.
He was a 14 to 1 long shot when he won the Preakness by a head on a muddy track at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore on May 21, 1983. His jockey was Donald Miller.
Deputed Testamony finished sixth in the 1983 Belmont Stakes. He didn't run in the Kentucky Derby.
He was trained by J. William Boniface, Billy Boniface's father.
