Hunt champ Revelstoke put down

March 25, 1995|By Ross Peddicord

Last year's Maryland Hunt Cup winner, Revelstoke, was humanely destroyed Monday after suffering complications from colic surgery.

The 10-year-old gelding contracted colitis "and took a turn for the worse on Sunday," said trainer Jack Fisher.

The horse was preparing for the 1995 steeplechase season when he was stricken last week. Revelstoke was buried in Coatesville, Pa., at the farm of Fisher's parents, John and Dolly Fisher, who owned the horse.

The son of Smarten ran the second-fastest Maryland Hunt Cup in the race's 100-year history. He completed the four-mile course over 22 jumps in 8 minutes, 37 2/5 seconds.
