One of the favourites for the 2011 Victoria Derby, The Muskeg Express, suddenly died early Wednesday morning.

The horse’s death was completely unexpected and so far there is no information as to what could have caused it.

“It happened so quickly. I was about to call the vet and then he was gone,” said The Muskeg Express’s trainer Luke McCarthy.
