Elle Est Belle has died after suffering a suspected heart attack during the Mersey Novices’ Hurdle at Aintree.
The Dan Skelton-trained mare collapsed during the Grade 1 race on Grand National Day, which was won by the 5-2 favourite Three Stripe Life. Elle Est Belle was held up towards the rear in the early stages and she had made headway towards the leaders when the tragedy occurred.
The four-time winner, including two races at Listed level, was in fourth place when she was pulled up quickly by jockey Harry Skelton in the 2m 4f event.
A spokesperson for Aintree Racecourse said: “Very sadly Elle Est Belle sustained a fatal injury close to the finish line in the Betway Mersey Novices’ Hurdle. All our thoughts are with Elle Est Belle’s connections.”
Elle Est Belle competed in eight races and her first career start was at Aintree in October 2020. The six-year-old won a bumper by five-and-a-half lengths and she had since taken her form to a new level over hurdles.
In 2021 she was placed at both the Cheltenham festival and the Grand National meetings. She won a total of £61,271 for her connections on the racecourse.
