Edward J. McGrath, a prominent Louisville, Ky., executive whose firm insured many prominent horses, died Saturday in a Louisville hospital after a long illness. McGrath, 75, is survived by a daughter, Barbara.

Funeral services were scheduled for Tuesday at the Ratterman Funeral Home in Louisville.

McGrath's firm also covered racetracks. A close friend of the late David "Sonny" Werblin, McGrath for many years hosted a pre-Kentucky Derby party at his home in suburban Louisville.
