    Donerail, a colt who was poised an early favorite to win the 1995 Hambletonian but instead left his mark as a filly sire and broodmare sire of champions, died in Jutland, Denmark, on Jan. 29 at age 25. Bred by Mary Hilliard and named for small town outside of Lexington, Ky., where historic Walnut Hall Farm is located, Donerail was one of the last top colts trained by Hall of Famer Stanley Dancer. In 1994, the 66-year-old Dancer deputized John Campbell to drive Donerail and the colt owned by Bob Suslow's RJS Stable won 13 of 15 starts, including the Peter Haughton Memorial Trot.
