Racing was reeling from a second Grand National related tragedy in quick succession on Wednesday when it announced that Rose Paterson, chairman of Aintree Racecourse since 2014, had died. She was 63.

The news came 24 hours after the death of Liam Treadwell, who rode the 100-1 winner of the 2009 National, Mon Mome.

Racing was reeling from a second Grand National related tragedy in quick succession on Wednesday when it announced that Rose Paterson, chairman of Aintree Racecourse since 2014, had died. She was 63.

West Mercia Police said today: “We can confirm the body of a woman has been found in woodland near Pant Lane in Sodylt in Ellesmere, Shropshire.

“The death is currently being treated as unexplained however at this stage there is believed to be no third party involvement.”

Liam Treadwell, the jockey who achieved an improbable victory aboard a 100-1 shot in the Grand National in 2009, has died. The 34-year-old was found at his Shropshire home on Tuesday morning…

A statement from West Mercia police said: “Earlier this morning police were called to an address in Billingsley near Bridgnorth following the death of a man in his 30s. The death is currently being treated as unexplained. However at this stage there is believed to be no third-party involvement.”

TAP.  The suggestion that there were two separate suicides on the same day from well known racing figures connected to Aintree is hard to fathom.  It’s possible but how likely?

Are there reasons why one powerful family wants to strike back at another one – Rothschilds and the Ridleys?  It’s got an Illuminati feel to it.

She was a wonderful person, and will be much missed by her many friends and family.  The same goes for Liam Treadwell who I didn’t know, but who had an amazing career.

Two people is like a signature to let insiders know.  The real target, if I am right, was Rose Paterson who was doing too well for someone’s tastes.  If it really was a suicide then the evidence must be there.  A neighbour said she spoke and looked just normal as she rode past a few hours before she died.   Unless there is evidence that it was a suicide, I still have my doubts.  My deepest sympathy goes to her husband and her family.

The Police were called on the 23rd to search for Rose, the same day Liam died, although for some reason her death was announced the next day.  It took four hours to find her body?  She was last seen alive at midday by a neighbour on the 23rd, so could have died well before the Police were called.  Her body was found in the wood near the Pant Lane at the back of the house.  Did she return that way after her ride?  Was the horse back in the stable?  I am sure we won’t hear the full story, and the media will manage the release of information about her death,

In the news article in a local paper The Whitchurch Herald, Mr Paterson said no one had seen his wife since the evening of the 22nd June at 10pm.  Yet the neighbour saw her on her horse on the 23rd at midday and spoke to her.  Those two versions don’t tally well.  It was his birthday and their 40th wedding anniversary that week.  He was obviously in London, and was still in London on the 24th when he asked the Press for privacy.

No one called the Police until 10pm on the 23rd June.  He seemed very distressed on the 24th when he was with Iain Duncan Smith in Westminster, and he then came up to Shropshire to identify her.  I hope he can hold his act together.  He’s a very friendly and charming person.  No one deserves this in their life.

And may the spirit of Rose and of Liam go to rest in peace.  They will need those still living to pray for them and help them to overcome their distress from the evil that has been perpetrated..
