HELEN PRICE 05.12. 1949 – 04.10.2011

 

With much sadness we would like to inform all our friends and clients of the death of Helen Price at her home in Sydney this week.

Helen had not been in good health for some years and like us was devastated when her identical twin Valerie died just on two years ago.

Helen and Val have been an integral part of our business since its inception and we knew them both prior to that as clients of Vern Rayner’s Classic Bloodstock, whose horses we managed.

Helen and Val were inseparable and the keenest of race horse owners - known to every gate person and race course executive all over New South Wales/ACT. They drove all over the state and interstate to watch their horses race and maintained the happiest of demeanours even when their horses did not run well. It was as much about the social occasion and catching up with friends as it was leading in their winners.

Apart from being the best of clients and personal friends, Helen and Val looked after their fellow owners on race day when we could not be present and we will forever be grateful to them.

We know all our owners who had any contact with Helen will join with us in offering our sympathies to her brother and family and to all her friends.

Helen was a “true Christian” who saw the good in everybody and we will miss her very much; racing in NSW has lost one of the great and good, racing will be the poorer for it and so will we.
