Cubes - Nigel Babbage


Recommended Posts

It came as a shock to read that he passed away on Sun avo, aged 59.

A very popular poster on Racecafe and a keen participant in PJ's comps when they were there.  Always posted in the third person and always referred to family as other shapes other than a cube

As an article about him said, broke at 27, retired at 43

Great to see Bad Flamingo get the win for him today.

Yes was brilliant finale to a sad week.And the winner of the 2nd race Papagena has Nigels connection through his ex trainer and friends Kevin and Pam Hughes.

I never clicked it was him 😢, he was a valued member of several punters clubs and agree his wit was amazing. Loved him talking in the 3rd person. Real shame I didn't get to meet him in person.
