Raise a glass of cider in memory of a legend.

Am with you Ivanhoe. So sad. I even had a little money on him today...

I went to Exeter last year. Nearly went this year. Glad I didn't.

No use flogging a dead horse, unless it's for glue!

What are you all talking about?

It's a horse. Though I have to admit, at first I thought George Best had died.

Not a big racing fan, but even I'd heard of Best Mate...

"Best Mate was never out of the first two in his 21 races, 14 of which he won" Not a bad record for any competitor...

Exactly. I'm not a football fan, but I've heard of Chelsea.

Best Mate won the Gold Cup three times, which is phenomenal. I would recommend Henrietta Knight's book for anyone with an interest.

So sad wasn't it - we'd had a flutter on him too as he'd won for us so many times in the past.
