Is Dickie on the list?

The indestructible Sir Peter O’Sullevan was among those braving the wind at the Kempton Boxing Day meeting. Dressed in a smart brown, leather coat the 94-year-old ‘voice of racing’ admitted he had only just recovered from his pre-Christmas excursion to Salford for the BBC Sports Personality programme.
‘It’s a long way way to go,’ he says. ‘I didn’t get back to London until half-past three in the morning.’
Usefully, for those who had the luck to bump into him, Sir Peter also successfully tipped Binocular in the fourth race.

Sir Peter did a voice over tribute to Henry Cecil on the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards last week. He sounded old and croaky, but there again, he IS old and croaky

Unfortunately he did not appear on camera.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Peter was interviewed at Cheltenham by Radio Four's Today programme this morning.

 

Croaky, but mentally sharp, and still up on the runners and riders.

 

He may well see 2016 on that form.
