It is with deepest sadness that the BHRC report the passing of Mr George Carter.

A great trotting gentlemen, Jacque Bilto was one of George’s many successful imports, mainly from Denmark. He won the Roosevelt with him at York in 1994, after winning this classic at Kendal in 1990 with Gunnar Lassergard and again with Gustav Way at Tir Prince in 1993. Gustav was driven by Steve Lees, all others driven by Ian Pimlott.

Nelson Tilt, Elvis Moseley, Wick Win and Wallysien were other good trotters George campaigned successfully.

Our sympathies and condolences are extended to all his family and friends.

Funeral will be held on Tuesday 6th February at 12noon at St Mary’s Catholic Church, Ford Green Road, Norton ST6 8LT.
