Was actually moved from my own upset to write about this. 21 yr old jump jockey Campbell Gillies has died in a freak accident on holiday in Greece. Tributes indicate he was a much loved individual, a good friend to many, and a desperate loss. Bizarrely, just over a month ago Brindisi Breeze, the horse he partnered to win at Cheltenham, was killed when he jumped out of his paddock and was struck by a tanker.
