The racing community have recently been mourning the death of Scottish commentator Doug Fraser. His body was discovered in the River Aire near to his Leeds home earlier this month, over a week after his failure to appear at a meeting at Hexham.
Fraser was well regarded within the racing community and tributes have been paid by many of his former colleagues within racing. A regular on the commentary circuit in the Scotland and the North of England, he was a familier voice to those of us in this area. Fraser provided accurate and informative commentary in his distinctive Scottish tones.
Sympathy goes out to Doug's family, friends and colleagues.
