Tributes have been paid to Painswick-based racehorse owner Brian Kilpatrick who died on Wednesday. He died of a heart attack, aged 83, and leaves his wife Enid and children Andrew and Jane. He owned Sabin Du Loir, which was never beaten by the legendary Desert Orchid in four meetings. The horse, trained by Martin Pipe, won a string of top races including the SunAlliance Hurdle. Mr Pipe's son David told the Racing Post: "He was a true gent." Born in 1930 in Manchester, Mr Kilpatrick was a banker.
