Terrance Millard passes away

One of South Africa’s greatest trainers, Terrance Millard, passed away on Wednesday evening.

Millard was due to turn 90 in a few weeks’ time and according to son-in-law Geoff Woodruff, had been frail for the last year. “He passed away quietly on Wednesday night,” said Woodruff.

By the time he retired in 1991 Millard had set a whole bunch of records. He captured 117 Grade 1 races, 44 Grade 2s and 37 Grade 3s.

And while he fell one short of Syd Laird’s seven Durban July winners, on two occasions his horses filled the first three past the post. Six was clearly his lucky number as he also won the Met and Gold Cup six times each.

According to Woodruff a memorial service is being planned for Thursday 28 November. Details will be made available later but it will probably be held in Milnerton.
