Galpin's Death


The death of Richard Galpin came as a shock. He attended the under tack show for the Fasig-Tipton Florida sale of 2-year-olds in training and was in good spirits even though his face was banged up. Laughing, he explained that he had fallen in a parking lot the night before. Then, just days later, he was gone.

Richard, from a journalist's point of view, was a good person to have around. He was always upbeat, and he would always give you a quote. He also had some interesting insights into the market and the industry. You can be cynical and say he just wanted publicity, but he never commented on whether or not I used any of his comments in my stories.

I will miss him.
