Today’s blogpost is dedicated to Liam Treadwell, who in 2009 rode Mon Mome to Grand National victory, and personally gave me the most euphoric high I have ever experienced on a racecourse after my several month “hunch” became an actually reality on that fateful Saturday afternoon.
Photo montages of Liam aboard Mon Mome adorn my wall and take pride of place in my home. It will always be a Grand National victory dear to my heart and I will never forget Liam’s part in it.
It deeply saddens me that Liam was unable to reach his own levels of euphoria ever again and I implore anybody that ever feels that things are getting too much for them, or are feeling overwhelmed, to not be afraid to reach out and to try and let people in. There are sympathetic listeners nearer to you than what you think and nobody will judge you.
