Not quite a coffin dodger at 71. However, quite a low score for somebody who was pretty fit in 1994 when he was still riding.

Maybe the stretch at HM's pleasure did him no good :lol:

:lol: Looks like someone tried to warn us about this last year.

It does make you wonder if the information about the other person she mentioned is indeed correct

They may beg, they may plead, they may argue with my logic

And mention all the things I'll lose that really have no value

In the end they will surely know, I wasn't born to follow

Not to mention all those years of heavy dieting, always required of a jockey. Quite a strain to maintain a weight of 8 stone if you're 5 foot 8.

Hmm, apart from the bad health history of jockey in general, I can't see why they picked him. Because O'Sullevan's death opened a slot for horse racing?

I've seen him at the Cheltenham Festival signing books, and he looked very fit and in good condition, although older. Quite recently he and Peter O'Sullevan were asked to leave their dining table on Gold Cup day because a large party was expected; it turned out to be Katie Price and her entourage ! Lester was an astounding jockey for many years, and I hope he continues to enjoy good health for the next few years. Unless someone has 'inside' information I can't understand why he's been included on this list when other celebrities who have revealed publicly details of their (likely) terminal illnesses have been omitted.

Lester's always looked like that.  Was often referred to as Old Stoneface.

Willie Carson was talking to lester piggot one day and he told Lester that he had really bad cold sores.

 

Lester told him that he had a sure fire cure for cold sores.

 

"What you do" he said, "ith to walk up behind a horth, lift ith tail up and kith it right on iths arth"

 

Willie asked, "will that cure cold sores Lester?"

 

"No" he replied, "but it will thtop you licking your lipth!"

Vem fan bryr sig om Lester Piggott? Hade aldrig hört talas om honom förrut. Trodde att DeathList var till för jättekända människor, inte urtråkiga gubbar som rider på hästar. Gäsp...Om han hade varit någon annan nationalitet än britt skulle han överhuvudtaget inte ha valts ut av den så kallade "kommittén". Folk här säger att Javier Cuellar är den tråkigaste personen i listan, men Lester är en bra utmanare till den föga smickrande titeln. Seriöst, njuter folk verkligen av att se hästtävlingar? Uppenbarligen gör de ju det, men har hästarna något val? Nä, de stackarna TVINGAS ju springa varv efter varv efter varv, alternativt lockas de till det med morötter/sockerbitar. Dags att skrota dessa tävlingar och låta dessa överklassherrar själva springa om de nu så gärna vill vinna olika lopp. :banghead:

Zgadzam się z tobą. Rozumiem, że jest to strona brytyjska ale to nie znaczy, że mogą wstawiać mało znanych Brytyjczyków a jak ktoś wspomina o kimś bardzo chorym lecz też niezbyt znanym innej narodowości, to od razy krzyczą, że nie jest "materiałem" na listę.
