Willsford was the oldest horse to win the Scottish Grand National and also won the Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter in 1990.
He was owned by Arnold Kaplan, Robert Johnson and David Johnson and trained by Jenny Pitman.
Willsford was named after a block of flats where Robert and his wife, Janet, and Arnold and his wife, Kathy, all used to live together, Willsford Green in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
Willsford had a heart attack and died in a race.
There have been a few memorial races held for Willsford at Cheltenham Racecourse.
