Tim Bell, stable jockey for Qld trainer Steve O’Dea, has died in Singapore after falling from a balcony. Tim was a fine stamp of a bloke, very professional and naturally talented. He piloted SIR MOMENTS to victory in last year’s Qld Guineas amongst a host of wins in the black & lime green and at the age of 22 had the racing world at his feet.
This is an unspeakable tragedy. Our hearts go out to his family, girlfriend Heidi and many close friends like Steve. Racing, Proven Thoroughbreds and the O’Dea Stable, are all profoundly the poorer for his sudden & heartbreaking passing.
