WHAT HAPPENED TO TREVOR KERSEY WHO TRAINED AT WEST MELTON SOUTH YORKSHIRE?

Answer: The horse race trainer Trevor Kersey was an unusual and engaging man who trained at Bleak House Stables, West Melton, near Rotherham.

He once featured in a BBC film showcasing his yard in the 1970's which gave an insight into the running of a low key family yard.

His daughter, Susan rode for the yard and enjoyed some success with horses such as Domarc who won at Cheltenham, Mandalay Prince sixth in the Sun Alliance Novices' Hurdle, and Mardood being placed in the Champion Hurdle Trial at Haydock.

However he had his own way of settling his Weatherby's bills with cash payments at the racecourse. Eventually changes at Weatherbys put an end to this arrangement and in January 1999 Trevor Kersey decided to give up his licence.

He said at the time: "It's a sad way to end a lengthy training career and I feel really sick and hurt over how it's happened.

"But I've enjoyed my time in racing. I was only 20 when I first started as a permit-holder, and I've had plenty of good times."
