Vale Mr Roy Hinton (Funeral Details)

The Newcastle racing community is mourning the death of champion trainer and jockey Roy Hinton, at the age of 92.

Hinton won multiple Newcastle jockeys and trainers premierships and was one of the men responsible for Newcastle racing boom in the 1970s. In 1960 after a riding career lasting 20 years and including over 600 winners Hinton began his training career.

As a trainer Hinton trained upwards of 1000 winners and prepared such turf greats as Swiftly Ann and Manawapoi who took out the 1976 Stradbroke Handicap with son-in-law Alan Scorse riding.

Hinton took out eight Newcastle trainers' premierships including seven in a row and was once referred to as the 'TJ Smith of the North'.

Along with his late wife Audrey, Hinton established and cared for the Newcastle Racing Museum which serves as a lasting legacy to racing in Newcastle and the Hunter.

Right up to his passing Roy was a regular attendee at Newcastle races where he was an extremely popular figure among members, trainers and jockeys.

Roy Hinton was a much-loved member of the Newcastle racing community and will be sorely missed by all. He is survived by his daughter Sharon, grandchildren Matthew and Bradley, and great grandchild Lachlan. - Jack Marshall

NOTE: A funeral service will commence at 10:30am on Thursday (8th June) at Pettigrew Family Funerals, 984 Hunter Street, Newcastle West.
