    As it’s an obituary (which I think I’m right in saying, are usually written well ahead of time so they are ready to print a day or so after someone famous pops their clogs), George Ennor may well have written this well in advance.

    isn’t it usual to end an obit with "is survived by……."?

    i seem to recall, around Steve Cauthen’s time, that there was a lady amateur riding also named Vittadini ?

    best regards

    thanks for that.

    she also seems to have bred at least one horse that Vincent O’Brien bought:

    ….in the days when J Murtagh was a 3lb claimer, no less !

    Also, I believe his daughter, Franca, rode in the Ladies Race on the Ascot Diamond Day Card. If memory serves me right she may in fact have ridden the winner of one of these races, possibly in the lates 70’s early 80’s.

    Thanks for your welcome from sunny Talbot Green. Hopefully,
    we will exchange points of view in the future,

    Cheers,
