One of the truly unsung heroes of racing passed away this morning (9 March).
Most of you wouldn’t have met – or know of – Marian Lo-Nigro, but would be familiar with the fruit of her tireless efforts.
Marian has been one of the behind-the-scenes toilers at Winning Post since Tony Kneebone was in short pants, filling many roles and seeing it through stumbling infancy to its pre-eminent industry position.
Marian eventually succumbed after a long, long battle with cancer, but not before she’d dragged herself off the canvas more times than we’d care to remember.
Our condolences go out to Marian’s family, including her daughters Grace and Lina.
Rest in peace, Mags.
