We bid an official farewell to Robert Fayd’Herbe as he leaves on his new business venture in Madagascar.

Robert has been a loyal servant to Mike Bass, and later to Candice, for close on 20 years, during which time he guided many into the winners box including July top-weight Marinaresco, Grade 1 winner Jepees Reef in the Gold Cup, and many more.

We will miss his sense of humour and loyal friendship, but wish Robert the very best with his future endeavours.

Below is one of his finer images caught on camera.
