THE pass­ing of Si­mone Mont­gomerie was not only the big­gest story in Darwin sport this year, but it was the sad­dest. Hav­ing be­come the first fe­male ever to win the Darwin jockey’s pre­mier­ship af­ter boot­ing 27 win­ners home dur­ing the 2012-13 sea­son, the 26-year-old’s ca­reer was clearly on an up­ward spi­ral. Hav­ing in­ter­viewed Si­mone on Darwin ra­dio sta­tion Ter­ri­tory FM, her pass­ing on Darwin Cup Day just two days later came as a shock and hope­fully it won’t be long be­fore the Darwin Turf Club names the jockey rooms at Fan­nie Bay in her hon­our.
