      Barry rode for me just the once.
      13/11/2004 3rd on Lord Noelie to Stormez
      A perfectly respectable ride and, as far as I remember, he gave a decent post race report. I do remember hearing that he tried to get connections of all his rides to each pay all his travel expenses. I believe that we knocked him down to a fair figure.

      Happy that he's gone out on his own terms.
      I didn't realise you were involved in the syndicate that owned Lord Noelie Archie.

      What a wonderful horse he was. I still remember his win in the RSA beating Alexander Banquet and Native Upmanship. I'd fancied him since his win at Newbury, and had a nice win on him at the Festival. Does 20 years qualify as the longest bit of after-timing ever.

      Actually thinking about it, you've done remarkably well with your involvement over the years.

        I was a latecomer, Spectre. Only joined when he came back from injury with Bridget Nicholls. Still a fine day when AP got him home for his first win in over 3 years since the RSA.

                  My favourite and most profitable jock.

                  Great to see he got out in one piece.

                    Glad he went out for a banger of a festival so his legacy won't be the snagging he's had in recent years.

                    Only ride I've ever really crabbed was Yanworth in the Neptune, and in hindsight, the horse probably just wasn't quite as talented as I thought

                      Should be a good read when it’s out just in time before the NH season kicks off

                        Final furlong podcast has a special pod up with an hour and a half interview with Barry. A good listen I thought and especially loved his insight about Champ in the RSA.
