Sadly we have lost Michael Jarvis from the world of horse racing, who died on September 20th aged 73, after suffering from long term prostate cancer and heart disease.
Respected trainer and former racer himself, Jarvis was one of the rare kinds, working his way up from the bottom as a stable lad with hard graft, talent and determination to become a training expert and revered within the horse racing community.
He was one of the Flat's longest-serving and most respected trainers, only retiring from the sport in February.
Jarvis had many accolades, and his horses were winners, namely multiple Group 1 winner Ratki at Royal Ascot, Arc winner Carroll House and Eswarah in his time at Kremlin House stables. With a wealth of experience and the skill to win, Jarvis’ reputation was second to none and a voice that will be sorely missed.
We pass our sincere condolences to his widow Gay, and daughters Sarah, Lisa and Jaci at this sad time.
