LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Just days after being retired, 2012 Derby contender Dullahan has died.

The four-year-old colt died Sunday morning due to complications of colic.

Louisville’s Dale Romans trained the colt, calling him a true champion on the track and in our hearts.

Dullahan was retired from racing last Monday with a tendon injury and stabled at Winstar Farms in Versailles, Kentucky.

He finished third in last year’s Derby behind I’ll Have Another and Bodemeister.
