Vale Mr Noel Wright

Racing NSW has been informed of the passing of former bookmaker, Mr Noel Horace Wright.

Mr Wright, 92, was a well-respected bookie and fielded in the metropolitan area for more than 30 years, retiring around 25 years ago.

"Dad started off in the old Randwick leger and then progressed to the main betting ring before finally being promoted to the rails," said Mr Wright's son, Grant. "Before he commenced bookmaking he flew bombers on missions in Germany during World War II.

"He was a good friend to many other bookmakers including Don Todd, Eric 'Mo' Conlon, Bill and Robbie Waterhouse, Colin Tidy and Arthur Singh."

Mr Wright is survived by children Kathleen, Jeanette, Glenn and Grant.

A funeral service will be held at Woronora Memorial Park (South Chapel) commencing at 11am this Friday (3rd March).
