My brother Colin was an icon in the racing fraternity here in the UK. Tales are repeated regularly about his wonderful career and his unique ability to school and bring on young horses , in fact any animal, his cat Simon Claw would ride hanging on to the saddle like a true jockey. He brought such joy to our parents as Dad a keen breeder himself was able to enjoy with Mum the social life of racing. I was never the perfect younger brother but blood runs thicker than water and I have so many fond memory’s. Linda will never forget the kindness Colin showed her when her farther was so ill. Although we never saw you again after you left for distant shores we have had the great privilege of having Kate and Kim and their large brood staying with us regularly here in Wales , Kate and Greer showing such a strong family resemblance to you . Signing off as Harry Hog , safe journey Colin
Colin was my younger brother,and had a wonderful way with horses.
Colin trained in horse racing in America in the 1950s,with ” Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons”who was the most famous trainer at the time.
Colin went on to be a successful trainer in England where he built his stables on his fathers farm,and went on to win many prestigious
Colin was very sociable and enjoyed meeting different people.
My regret is that he was unable for one reason or another,to get back to see his Mother just before she died.
I hope he is at peace.
Sending Barbara and Joanne and family our sincere condolences. Happy memories of Colin from the tennis court.
Love and best wishes from Jennie and Mike Holland in the Wirral, UK
