    Just had a phone call from his trainer Ted Caine to tell me that my hero  & namesake QC has been put to sleep, apparently his teeth & feet were giving cause for concern & it was the kindest thing to do to so that he didn’t suffer.<br>I was a fan way before he was ‘famous’ and saw him run many times, culminating in his 102nd defeat, but God loves a trier.<br>The Caine family are lovely people & Ted has just applied for a licence again, so look out for Pharnoon, Hamnothere, No Publicity Please & Swiss Gem, I wish him the best of luck.

    Very sad.  He was proof that you don’t have to be a winner to be loved.  Deserves his own movie.

    Yes Graysons will be upset, in those great days when we used to follow him every time he ran, he wore the T Shirt & I wore the scarf!<br>I have loads of picture of QC & will always remember him with affection

    That is sad news. Racing isn’t all about winners, it’s more than that. I used to follow a horse called Past Master who nine times out of ten refused to start the race. It’s the characters in the game that make it special.

    Quite right, Burroughhill, and I, too, was distressed by Quixall Crossett’s death.  One of my favourite horses ever was the notorious Vodkatini and I was so sorry when he was killed in a point-to-point.

    Yes Vodkatini appealed to people who get sick up of the pristine hero in white that can do no wrong….namely Desert Orchid.
