Yet more quality contenders:Bart Cummings - born 1927 - most famous and successful horse trainer in Australian history.

Nearly time for our annual check-up on Bart's health. Unbelievably, he still appears to be going strong and has entered a horse in this year's Cup. Go Bart go!
It is that time of year again... Bart didn't have a horse in the Cup this year but that doesn't stop our annual health check! Here is a photo of the old boy from a few days ago. Do we think he will last another year?905257-bart-cummings.jpg
It is that time of year again... Here is our annual Bart Cummings health check for 2014:593525-d4ff9f80-5e67-11e4-919b-767a5a42a
We are sure that the guy on the right isn't just some kind of twisted puppeteer?
No more annual health check photos. RIP Bart. Yet another big Aussie death for this year: http://www.abc.net.a...aged-87/6735292
Detailed obit now up: http://www.abc.net.a...is-time/6735314

Bert's been released from hospital.

Doesn't matter he's still going on my DDP.
Just came across this amusing piece from last year:

Yet more quality contenders:



Bart Cummings - born 1927 - most famous and successful horse trainer in Australian history.


Alan Bond - born 1938 - infamous corrupt businessman and convicted criminal.


Renee Geyer - born 1951 - soul singer who could have had massive international career but fell into huge amount of substance abuse in the 1970s and 1980s. Really was the Amy Winehouse of her day. Apparently clean now but, like some of the others I have listed, it must have shortened her lifespan somewhat, I would presume.


Dick Smith - born 1944 - entrepreneur, aviation guru and all-round annoying, supercilious git... <_< Still flies his helicopter everywhere - surely his luck will run out one of these days and he'll crash the bloody thing...


Bob Jane - born 1929 - racing car driver and founder of tyre retail chain. Both he and his wife are rather unpleasant people, based on all accounts. Here is an example:

http://www.abc.net.a.../19/2469320.htm

Some on the internet say it was a lavender marriage, anyway... ;)


Allan Moffatt - born 1939 - one of the older racing car drivers from the heyday of Bathurst.


Ron Hamence - born 1915 - oldest living test cricketer and member of the Invincibles.


Neil Harvey - born 1922 - famous cricketer and member of the Invincibles.


Arthur Morris - born 1922 - famous cricketer and member of the Invincibles.

 

Arthur Morris has died, aged 93. http://www.smh.com.a...821-gj58uz.html

 

One DDP team heads for the pavilion of points. Once there's a qualifying obit.

 

Edit: Which is now. https://uk.news.yaho...30.html#HyWwoEK
