Incredible performance by the old boy today, to win his final race.

I can remember seeing him win his first race at my local track Yarmouth as 2-Y-0 over 12 years ago when trained by Michael Bell.That's hope he has very happy retirement.

Hi Jerry,

I must admit watching the race brought a tear to my eye. The way The Tatling ran on making up four or five lengths was something to behold. What a fitting way to finish his career, to win in a photo. Yarmouth is one of my favourite courses, always go for the September meeting. He is truly one in a million. It was brilliant to see his finale and to prove to all his fans he can finish on a high.
