This champion of yesteryear was lucky enough to live to an advanced age---33---but the guests at his final birthday party were less fortunate, largely due to their own overindulgence after having tried to drink a toast to every year of the horse's age and then some. While no one died as a result of this epic bash, the horse was one of the few at the celebration not suffering from a monumental hangover the next day. Who was the equine guest of honor at this memorable gala?

Count Fleet did live to be 33, but he wasn't the guest of honor at this epic birthday bash---you'll have to look a bit further back in time for the right horse. Keep trying!
