Long-time Cranbourne committee man and breeder Les Tilley died on Saturday at age 90.

Mr Tilley was a commitee man and secretary of Cranbourne Harness Club for many years, a timekeeper at the Showgrounds and Moonee Valley for about 15 years, and a member of the Standardbred Breeders Association.

Mr Tilley and his late wife Joan were members of the VHRC for more than 50 years, when they bred and raced horses successfully.

Their best was Group 1 winning trotter Conaroyal and they also had multiple metro winner Desert Chase, who produced recent metro winners Desert Spur and Desert Flyer. The latter won the Aldebaran Park Vicbred Trot at Melton on June 8, the breeder's last winner.

HRV sends its condolences to Mr Tilley's family and friends.
