    Love that look over the shoulder by Dwyer between the last two.

    That's a gut punch. Journeyman jockey always capable when given the ammunition. Terrible news.

    Lord bless him and his poor family

    Best wishes to anyone who feels that way too

    Saw him ride at Donny and Nottingham back in the day.
    IIRC, he also held the record for number of Jump winners for quite a while.
    RIP Stan.

    Stan rated his Galway Plate win on Ross Sea, referred to by Art on another thread as one of his best rides.
    Landed in Galway the night before trainer Phonsie O'Brien asked Stan what he wanted to drink. "Beer please "came the reply. "Beer is boy's drink; have a man's drink !" replied Phonsie, handing him a large whiskey.
    Needless to mention the following day poor Stan was the worse for wear. Not having ridden the track before he stuck to the inside and let the horse do the racing !
    Rest In Peace.

    Coral Pritchard-Gordon, long term partner to Sir Michael Stoute has died aged 73. V sad to read. I never met her but she always came across as a lovely lady and played a huge supporting role in his life and career.
