Vale Ian Dobson

Ian Dobson, one of harness racing’s most successful owners of all time, died this morning in Christchurch on his 90th birthday.

Dobson, whose name is synonymous with the champion pacer Christian Cullen, started winning races in 1986 but, incredibly, was only now enjoying the best run of his life.
