    Awful news. A stark reminder of the risks all jockeys take on a daily basis. Thoughts and prayers with his family and friends in this dark hour.

    Put’s all the hot air expelled about this sport in perspective.

    Really shocking, awful. You can’t begin to think what his family must be going through, my thoughts are with them.

    Very sad indeed. Deepest sympathy to his family and fiancee in this time of sorrow. We are reminded by this tragedy  "a horseman’s grave is always open"

    What an awful tragedy.

    Other than his Cheltenham win on Hardy Eustace, I didn’t know too much about him, but it seems he was a lovely lad, which makes it all the worse.

    Sympathies to his family and his many friends.

    Tragedy is the ‘mot juste’.

    We have so much lighthearted banter on here that it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that people are working hard & with danger daily, for us to have our entertainment.

    It is always tragic in my opinion when a young person dies – so much of life they haven’t seen, but of course he is at peace now & it is the grief of his proud family that perhaps is the most heart rending aspect of this particular tragedy.

    Our thoughts are with them now & particularly tomorrow when I understand it is his funeral.

    Horrible and sickening news, especially when there were reports that he could have been improving but the fact he was on a life support machine showed how serious it was from the outset. At 25 it’s such a waste and my thoughts and prayers are with his family. It really does put everything else into perspective.

    Just couldn’t believe the lack of coverage in not just the racing pages but the sports pages generally.  So little respect.

    It is truely difficult to put into words, how awful this tragic event is. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain that Kieran’s family and friends are going through at this time, – my thoughts are with them all. I am sure that the presence of this talented young man,  both on and off the racecourse, will be greatly missed, but never forgotten

    RIP Kieran
