    Such terrible news. He was only 43 years old.

    Jonjo O’Neill posted he was a great jockey and an even better man. Hear hear to that.

    RIP Mr Smullen.

    Sadly, confirmed by the RP. Pancreatic cancer is very tough to overcome. I hope he had some quality time with his family.
    May he rest in peace!

    Pancreatic cancer is the worst because by the time it’s diagnosed it’s generally too late to be saved.

    A racing buddy of mine died from this at just 59. He was a very fit bloke and ran marathons and had climbed Everest. He had a very good job and lovely family and home and everything to live for. RIP Malcolm

    RIP Pat Smullen

    I find it impossible (genuinely) to watch any flat race finish at Galway without Des’s voice in my head exclaiming “And it’s another one for Dermot Weld and Pat Smullen!”.

    RIP.
