A dark day
Yesterday the Scottish racing world woke to the shocking and tragic news that Peter Monteith appears to have taken his own life on Sunday evening. Those of us that saw and spoke to him earlier that day at Kelso find this very hard to take in and our thoughts, prayers and deepest condolences go to all of those nearest to him. Over the years I bought horses from Peter, sold horses to him and had a horse trained by him, he was always very easy to deal with and a pleasure to meet on the racecourse, he will be sorely missed by everyone in racing, particularly on the Northern circuit.
