Sorry to lose Pontefract stalwart Dan Buoy.
The long-distance races will certainly not be the same again and he will be much missed.
Our condolences go out to Richard Guest and his yard and Bamboozelem - the owners of Dan Buoy, who were such big supporters of Pontefract.
We hope to see them at Pontefract in 2012.
Norman Gundill and Richard Hammill On behalf of all Pontefract racegoers
