The well-known and respected Winton harness racing trainer / driver Alan Scobie passed away yesterday in Invercargill.

He had many top horses in his care over the years, headed by the cup class half-brothers, Lord Lenny and Lookahead and the very smart Charles Luca who won five straight in New Zealand before his sale to North America where he became a talented free for all horse.

Alan was a sought after catch driver with the brilliant juvenile Trident and outstanding race mare Steady Lady just two horses he drove regularly.

He was also a great educator of young drivers with both his son Brendan and Lauren Pearson winning the new Zealand Junior driving championship while employed by him.
