The Victorian harness racing community is in mourning following the passing yesterday of prominent owner and trots man Brian Dobson.

Brian had been associated with the sport over a long period of time, being a member of the Victoria Harness Racing Sports Club (formerly the Victoria Trotting Club), the Caduceus Club, of which he was treasurer, and the executive committee of the Metropolitan & Country Harness Racing Association (MACHRA). Brian was also co-host of the long-running harness racing radio program “Harness Review”.

Brian was involved with a number of very smart pacers including present-day star Tee Cee Bee Macray who is racing at Tabcorp Park this Friday, Blazeaway Macray (a winner of eleven races including the HBV Jodies Babe), Same Old Macray (22 wins the biggest being 2005 APG Final) and Dee En Ay Macray (16 wins claiming both the 2004 & 2005 Vicbred Super Series), all bred by long-time associate Ian Kitchin and trained by Alan Tubbs who was a great and loyal family friend.

Other winners to come Brian’s way in recent times were Milliondollar Wave (NSW Breeders Challenge) and trotter Drunken Maniac, with another of the team Shady Secret ready to resume in the coming weeks.

Many of the horses were raced in partnership with son Paul, Ian Kitchin and Ken Adams.

Harness Racing Victoria extends sincere condolences to Brian’s family.

Funeral details will be communicated when advised.
