What happened to horse trainer Milton Harris?

What happened to horse trainer Milton Harris?  Milton Harris, who, since 2018, has been based in Sutton Veny, near Warminster, Wiltshire, was first granted a training licence by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) in 2001. However, in the last decade and a half, Harris, 64, has had what might be politely described as an ‘interesting’ relationship with the governing body. The BHA first objected to Harris holding a training licence in late 2009, on the grounds that he was ‘not a fit and proper person’ to do so. Nevertheless, he continued to train under a temporary licence, with conditions, in 2010 and 2011 but, in December 2011, was made subject of a five-year bankruptcy restrictions order.

Reflecting on his bankruptcy, Harris said later, ‘Things had gone wrong with personal and financial relationships and I’d got myself in a few scrapes.’ Whatever the reasons, it was not until 2018 that the licensing committee relented and, once again, granted him a training licence. By his own admission, Harris resumed his training career with just eight horses and just two members of staff but, nonetheless, saddled a career-best 56 winners in 2021/22 and was just one shy of the number in 2022/23.

In the 2023/24 season, so far, he has saddled 33 winners and accrued just over £373,000 in prize money, placing him six in the National Hunt Trainers’ Championship. However, he is unlikely to be adding to that total any time soon because, on November 11, 2023, his training licence was suspended, with immediate effect, by the BHA. Any issue only came to light on November 9, 2023, when two of Harris’ intended runners at Ludlow, Balboa and Giddyupadingdong, were withdrawn, having been deemed, rather mysteriously, as ‘not qualified’ by the BHA. Harris is required to attend a licensing committee meeting in January 2024, to face accusations of ‘a breach of the conditions on his licence and related matters’.

George Best

George Best  George Best, who died in November, 2005, was one of the most naturally gifted players in the history of football. Genuinely two-footed, quick and elusive, he was equally effective on the left or right flank and garnered worldwide acclaim for his technical ability and flair. Indeed, in his heyday in the mid to late Sixties, his celebrity transcended football, so much so that he was dubbed the ‘Fifth Beatle’.

Handsome, stylish and extremely well-paid, by ordinary standards, Best enjoyed a playboy lifestyle, of which he once said, ‘ I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.’ Sadly, though, Best suffered from lifelong alcoholism, which overshadowed his brilliant playing career, led to a controversial liver transplant in 2002 and, ultimately, resulted in his premature death, at the age of 59.

Born in Belfast on May 22, 1946, Best was scouted by Manchester United as a 15-year-old and made his first team debut against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford on September 14, 1963. Two First Division titles, in 1965 and 1967, and a European Cup, in 1968, followed, but Best did not stay long at the top of the game.

In 1972, beset with problems with alcohol, which led to erratic form and behaviour, not to mention weight gain, Best announced his retirement, more than once, before changing his mind. Nevertheless, he failed to recover his previous level of brilliance and made his final appearance for Manchester United in 3-0 defeat by Queens Park Rangers on January 1, 1974. Still only 27, played for 11 different clubs, including Stockport, Fulham, Hibernian and Bournemouth, without any notabel succcess, before finally retiring in 1983.

Gareth Edwards

Gareth Edwards  Sir Gareth Edwards, knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2015 for services to sport and charity, was arguably the greatest scrum-half in the history of rugby union. Born on July 12, 1947, in the former mining village of Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen, near Ammanford, in South West Wales, Edwards made his international debut, at the age of 19, in a Five Nations Championship match against France at the Stade Olympique Yves-du-Manoir, near Paris in 1967. The following season, at the age of 20, he became the youngest ever captain of the Welsh national team, against Scotland at Cardiff Arms Park in the same competition.

All told, as arguably the best player in a back division that included John Peter Rhys ‘JPR’ Williams, Gerald Davies, Phil Bennett and Barry John, Edwards would win 53 consecutive caps for Wales. Remarkably, for a scrum-half, he scored twenty tries for Wales in Test matches. He also won ten caps for the British Lions, notably in New Zealand in 1971, when they lost only one game and won a Test series against New Zealand and South Africa in 1974, when they were undefeated for the entire tour.

Edwards also scored what has been described as the ‘greatest try ever’ when playing for the Barbarians against New Zealand at Cardiff Arms Park in January, 1973. In the first few minutes of the match, Barbarians’ fly-half Phil Bennett retrieved a kick from New Zealand winger Bryan Williams inside his own 22-metre line, sidestepped three opponents and passed to full-back JPR Williams. Twenty-five seconds later, Edwards capped a sensational handling move by diving over in the corner, leading commentator Cliff Morgan to exclaim, ‘A dramatic start! What a score!’
