Liam Treadwell (Death and Cause) Wiki – Liam Treadwell (Death and Cause) Biography
Jockey Liam Treadwell, who rode Mon Mome to victory in the 2009 Grand National, has died aged 34.
Trainer Alastair Ralph confirmed the tragic news on Tuesday and described Treadwell’s death as ‘unbelievably sad’ and a ‘big shock’. It has not been revealed how Treadwell passed away.
Tributes have poured in for Treadwell, who won the world’s greatest steeplechase at Aintree on 100/1 outsider Mon Mome 11 years ago.
Liam Treadwell was an English National Hunt jockey. He was born in the West Sussex town of Arundel and attended the local Angmering School. He was the winner of the 2009 Aintree Grand National, having ridden Mon Mome to victory at odds of 100/1. It was only the fifth time a horse at those odds won the race, the most recent being Foinavon in 1967. It was Treadwell’s debut in the Grand National, in his first season in jump racing.
After his Grand National victory on 4 April 2009, Clare Balding interviewed him and made fun of his apparently bad teeth. Both the BBC and Balding apologised by 6 April. Balding later clarified on BBC’s Have I Got News for You quiz that she believed Treadwell to have had his teeth “kicked out” by a horse, a common injury suffered by jockeys, apologising again for her error. Treadwell announced his retirement on 13 February 2018.
