Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Jodami dies at 23

Cheltenham Gold Cup winning racehorse Jodami has been put down at the age of 23.

Trained by Yorkshire-based Peter Beaumont, Jodami was put down on 1 December after getting cast in his box.

As well as winning the Gold Cup in 1993 Jodami won 17 other races — including three consecutive Irish Hennessy Cognac Gold Cups at Leopardstown from 1993-95.

He was partnered in 8 of his winning races — including the Cheltenham and Leopardstown wins — by jockey Mark Dwyer.

Jodami’s final win was in January 1997 at Haydock, when he was ridden by Norman Williamson, and his final race came a month later when he finished second in the Irish Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup.

He was owned by the late John Yeadon.
