Grand National hero One For Arthur has died aged 14, coach Lucinda Russell has confirmed.

One For Arthur made headlines at Aintree in 2017 by becoming the second Scottish-bred horse to win the world’s most famous race.

The son of Milan has won seven of his 25 career starts, clinching the 2017 Classic Chase at Warwick en route to Aintree.

In a statement on Twitter on Friday, Russell said: “We are sad to share that One For Arthur passed away this morning.

“A horse of a lifetime, he made our dreams come true by winning the Aintree Grand National in 2017.

“Arthur had a fabulous life on and off the track, and winning at Aintree gave himself immortality. He will be missed.”

Scottish Racing added: “So sad to hear that One For Arthur has passed away. He won the hearts of our nation with his brave run to victory in the Aintree Grand National in 2017.

“Our deepest condolences to the two widows of golf, Lucinda Russell, Derek Fox and all the connections. He will never be forgotten.”
