I think Bert says it all? Despite the mildly morbid title I think Murray achieved much of what he set out to do. His legacy is profound.

The ‘dream’ small thoroughbred stud Bert describes was actually ‘home’ to 1980 Golden Slipper winner ‘Dark Eclipse’ (Baguette ex Marjoram) bred and raced by Mace, Morag and Fiona Bain and trained by Neville Begg.
