RODNEY MASTERSHeadlines “BARRY HILLS RETIRES” Monday August 8th 2011
“I’m anxious for Charles to take the stable to a higher level . Now it’s up to him.”
Now is the exact time to make a start right across the board in taking British horseracing to a higher level, the Hills family over decades have served British horseracing consistently every day of every week of every month of every year throughout and over decades. Money could not buy the gift of their expertise to horseracing. This gift needs to be the flag bearer for the future, to set the standard for the future, to ensure such skills are never thrown on the scrap heap by the bloodhorse illiterate government, and bloodhorse illiterate regulation people. If this were to happen it would be one of the worst crimes this world has ever seen.

“The last thing he says is the phrase that stays longest in the memory. “No negatives,” insists SEB SANDERS, just before he heads back to the weighing room to prepare for the first of six rides at Bath.
“Not riding winners is quite boring, racings in a bit of a lull, everyone is feeling the pinch, but I have to look for openings and try to build new foundations, you’ve got to work for what you want – I know that, that’s what brought me the championship in the first place. If I stick at it, I’ll do alright.”
JULIAN MUSCAT"Review of Pattern system is long overdue."
