National regular Monanore is put down at 25.

MONANORE, who ran in five Aintree Grand Nationals, has been put down at the age of 25.

Bill Harney, who trained Monanore for most of his career, said yesterday: "The horse had a bout of colic and was put to sleep on Saturday. I suppose it was fitting that the end came for him on Grand National day."

Monanore finished third behind Rhyme 'N Reason and Durham Edition in the Aintree spectacular in 1988.

Harney said: "He ran in four Nationals for me and completed every time. He ran for Nigel Tinkler in 1990 and was carried out.

"When he was sold to Full Circle Racing, part of the deal was that he would come back to his original owner, John Meagher, when his racing days were over and it was at John's farm at Monanore, County Tipperary that he spent his retirement."

Monanore won the Leopardstown Chase, the Thyestes Chase and the Conyngham Cup while trained by Harney.
