Someone told me about what was said regarding what my father said about form students.
I would like to correct you, because he said it to me.
Firstly my father had the upmost respect for form students.
What was said was this.
When I started working on the racecourse at 16 years of age, my father and I were driving home from Warwick farm one-day and I said to him, dad there are these guys when a horse firms in the main betting ring they run out to the ledger and back the horse in a better price, they then come back into the main ring and lay the horse back at a shorter price.
My father then said, yes son they are called Crushers, I then said to him that's not a bad go dad, he then replied to me and said, yes son "it mightn't be a bad go but they eat meat pies all of their lives, We eat lobster" .
I am the one who tells the story to people so it's unfortunate when stories get bandied around how they get misinterpreted and say the opposite to what was actually said.
