Start spreading the news: former trainer Smith hitting the high notes

Brightening your day with turf tales from beyond the tracks

Nigel Smith is pursuing his second career on the Costa del Sol
1 of 1

Former trainer Nigel Smith has traded the racecourse for the stage as he pursues his singing career on the Costa del Sol.

After calling time in Beijing, where he had been training since 2005, the 62-year-old moved to Spain and worked his way on to the performing circuit.

But Smith’s vocal exploits began long before that.

He said: “When I was training I was singing, but only to my horses and anybody who would listen walking by.”

Smith had always wanted to be a singer, but it took some timely advice from his father to convince him to pursue his second career in earnest.

He now performs at events across the region with songs made famous by stars such as Neil Diamond.

Despite his success, Smith has not forgotten his time in racing.

He said: “I miss racing so much that I don’t even watch it on the TV, it hurts too much."

Now he has his sights set on playing bigger venues.

He joked: “I’m ambitious in everything I do. I wanted to win the Gold Cup but never had the horse. I want to sing in the Albert Hall but might never get there.”


Helipad fundraiser at Aintree

HELP Appeal will host an exclusive hospitality experience on Grand National Thursday at Aintree to raise funds for hospital helipads.
On April 12 guests will benefit from a unique view of the racing at ground level and enjoy a champagne reception, with proceeds going towards 24 new projects.

Former jockey Tom Weston, who was airlifted to hospital after suffering punctured lungs as a consequence of falling from Benbane Head in the 2015 Kim Muir at Cheltenham Festival, has emphasised their importance.

He said: “Getting to a hospital quickly was essential to my survival and recovery. The air ambulance and having a helipad beside the emergency department definitely helped with that.

“It would be reassuring for jockeys to know that if they ever need lifesaving treatment, they can get to a hospital swiftly and that’s why more hospital helipads are needed across the country.”
