Walter who won the Epsom Derby three times passed away on Tuesday, and speaking to KCLR, Christy says that Walter kept a low profile.
“Walter was just a lovely guy. In his young days we traveled around the world and places like India together. He was always very quiet, very reserved. He would have kept to himself quite a lot but he was a wonderful rider. Yeah, he was a lovely guy. The name(nickname) the Choir Boy. It’s typical because he was so quiet and kept himself a lot and he was a very very quiet man”
