Derby 2001: Bromley prepared for well-earned retirement.

While one BBC commentator marks a new milestone, another is bowing out. For Peter Bromley is due to hang up his microphone after describing what will be his 40th Derby.

Following a 41-year career as BBC Radio's voice of racing, Bromley, 72, embarks on a well-earned retirement, leaving

behind his Epsom grandstand eyrie.

Although hoping to call home one of Barry Hills's four runners, it is a safe bet Bromley's allegiance will not be detected by listeners around the globe, many of whom are familiar with him from his BBC World Service broadcasts.

"When the Derby runners have gone past the post, I'll sit back and probably regret my retirement," said Bromley, who will be succeeded by Lee McKenzie.
