Strive to be the best

‘It does not matter what you are going to do, always strive to be the best. That is what this yard is all about’ (C.Gillies)

Tragic news this morning came through on the sad passing away of National Hunt jockey Campbell Gillies at the mere age of 21.

On occasions like this the hurt and loss can be overwhelming but one should always try and draw comfort and strength from celebrating someone’s life, remembering their achievements and the way in which they enriched ours lives either directly or indirectly.

My fondest moment was Campbell’s superb ride on Culcabock at Aintree in 2009 in the conditionals/amateurs Handicap Hurdle  Link to result

That day I shed tears of joy after an emphatic and profitable win, today we shed tears of a different kind as we reflect.

CULCABOCK and Campbell Gillies win at Aintree 4/4/09
