Prominent owner Peter Mitchell has died suddenly.

Mitchell, whose colours were most famously carried by the mighty galloper Bonecrusher, passed away aged 73.

Trained by Frank Ritchie, Bonecrusher was a multiple Group One winner on both sides of the Tasman and his victory over Waverley Star in the 1986 Cox Plate (2040m) is acknowledged as one of greatest editions of the race.

Mitchell most recently had an ownership interest in the multiple winner Excalibur, trained for him by Ritchie’s son Shaune.
