This bandy-legged mae­stro set new stan­dards that still pass muster to this day.

Hav­ing swapped books for span­ners he ini­tially set off in a blue oval, but it was a switch to a bow-tie that yielded in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion. When the guns fell silent he was in­vited to join the best and soon proved his worth. Poor re­li­a­bil­ity blunted his first as­sault on the world stage, but he re­sponded in dom­i­nant fash­ion.

In­jury meant he spent the next year on the side­lines, while a lack of a com­pet­i­tive car stymied his come­back.

This was but a blip and he was soon fired back into con­tention, and he de­liv­ered over and over and over and over again.

He be­came an un­likely po­lit­i­cal pawn as the horse rode into town to make a point, while after time had caught up with him he en­joyed a life­time of guar­an­teed sup­port from a star he’d helped to shine so brightly.
