there was a thread on this a while ago. it was established that white breads are bad for horses. but home made bread that has none of the preservatives etc added is ok :)

I highly doubt it was the actual bread itself that killed the horse. I would assume it was the way he must have consumed it.
When I lived in Europe, bread was a huge treat for horses. No such thing as giving them carrots. I guarantee you NO horse ever died from eating bread.
