All Our Yesterdays.


June 28, 1978

lPeter Robinson, a successful jockey before he took up training in 1969, collapses and dies on his return journey from Salisbury to Newmarket. He was 42 years old and had ridden more than 600 winners, with at least one on every British Flat course. In the saddle he won the Ebor, the Royal Hunt Cup, three Lincolns and a Cambridgeshire, and as a trainer he added two more Cambridgeshires, a Lincoln and a Manchester Handicap.

lThe Royal colours are carried to victory at Salisbury when Strathspey (Ian Balding/Willie Carson) takes the first leg of the juvenile maiden from Cover Note. After the filly arrived at Kingsclere she was kicked in the face and had to have 21 pieces of bone removed.

lJames Fanshawe sends out his first two-year-old winner of the season when Unblest (George Duffield) lives up to the forecast of Fred Archer and the ouija board by beating Jacob Bogdani (Paul Cole/Richard Quinn) in the juvenile maiden at Nottingham.

lDavid Nicholls gives up his battle with the scales and hangs up his boots. He has ridden 421 winners in Great Britain, with his best results coming on Soba, Ballydurrow and Apple Wine.

lBarathea (Luca Cumani) is the 3-1 favourite for Saturday's Eclipse. Tenby (Henry Cecil) is a point longer with Opera House (Michael Stoute) on 6-1 and 10 bar.
