Record Racing; Peaty Sandy dies at 22.

One-time favourite Peaty Sandy has died at the age of 22.

Trained by permit holder Helen Hamilton at Innerleithen in the Borders, the chaser won 22 races, 10 at his favourite track Newcastle.

His victories included the 1981 Welsh Grand National after a nightmare trip through blizzards.

Peter Cheesbrough, who took over the Bishop Auckland stable reins when his uncle Arthur Stephenson died, broke his duck for the season when Deep Decision won at Ayr yesterday.

"After one point-to-point success this season this winner isn't before time," said Peter.
