    Fat Jockey Farewells

    We should have a place to say goodbye and pay tribute to any horses no longer with us.

    We'll start fresh from today and I'll sticky for ease but hopefully we don't have too much traffic in here.

    I thought you were going to be announcing that you were leaving us Kev.

    Agree with the thread but just hope that it isn't used much, for obvious reasons.

    Happy retirement to Cause of Causes. I imagine he is one of most people's favourites because of his Cheltenham record... and I am no different

    I remember the first time I backed him, when he came 3rd behind Olofi in a handicap hurdle at Cheltenham as a 4yo before JP bought him.

    His Kim Muir win was one of my favourite festival moments, watching on a phone screen (due to a long and not that interesting story)

    Magnificent effort in last years Grand National too. Cracking little horse!

    That is rubbish Sickbag Conti will get an honourable mention on the FFP this week hopefully. Was an example of what a fine trainer Paul Nicholls is of a 3 mile chaser IMO
