    Pity that. He was a decent jockey and a sound helpful guy to friends of mine.
    Hope he finds his niche.

    So sorry to hear that. A hugely talented horseman and a real gentleman. Somehow never reaped the rewards that his talents deserved. Best wishes to him whichever direction he now chooses to follow.
