O'Sullevan a Faller at Last!

British horse racing commentator, Peter O’Sullevan, has become another winner for DeathList 2015. 97 year old O’Sullevan started commentating on racing for the BBC in the 1940’s and became known as the “Voice of Racing”, finally retiring after a fifty year career in 1997. In the years after his retirement, the BBC ultimately withdrew from covering horse racing altogether. O’Sullevan had become a regular on the list in recent years, making his 6th appearance in 2015 at number 30. He is the 9th success of the year.
