When this Queen's Plate winner ran in Canada's premier event, he carried a jockey who carried a burden of his own: a death threat, to the effect that the jockey would be shot off his mount in the Plate if he did not deposit the demanded amount of money in a certain bank account prior to the race. The jockey was apparently a cool customer, for he rode a winning race anyway. No attempt was made at carrying out the threat, and the perpetrator was never identified. Name the horse and jockey who were part of this bizarre incident, and the year in which they won the Queen's Plate.
