Our dear friend and colleague Stephen Yarborough

Following a tragic accident on Friday 21st July, 2017 our dear friend and colleague Stephen Yarborough sadly passed away following serious injuries incurred in his role of Team Leader of the Starting Stalls at Haydock Park Racecourse.

John Bozza, CEO at RaceTech expressed his shock and sympathy saying “Our thoughts are very much with Stephen’s family, close friends and his colleagues at this very sad time.  Stephen was an experienced and popular member of the team; he will be hugely missed by everyone. We are doing all we can to support Stephen’s family and the investigation at this stage”.

Stephen 60, came from Great Habton, Nr Malton, and is originally from Grimsby, Yorkshire.  He leaves a son Christopher, daughter Sheridan and two grandchildren.

Both Stephen’s family and RaceTech are grateful for all the support shown by the wider racing community.  This tragic event has dented the hearts of so many who wish to express their sadness and support to Steve’s family and close colleagues as well as gratitude to the many unsung heroes across our sport.
