In Brief: Shaamit.

SHAAMIT died from a ruptured stomach, according to results of a post mortem examination.

The 1996 Derby winner, who died on Saturday, had a gut wall three times thicker than normal, the findings showed. The eight-year-old had lived with the condition for some time.

Problems surfaced when Shaamit suffered a bout of colic but fell too ill to be operated on, according to Mark Crossman, racing advisor to owner Khalifa Dasmal.

After his retirement, Shaamit had begun stud duties at the National Stud in Newmarket, then became the first Derby winner to stand at stud in Ireland, at Scravagh House Stud in County Down.
