This interview with Pat Smullen is among the most memorable moments we ever had on #RTERacing as he modestly described his bravery and discussed raising millions in The Pat Smullen Champions Race For Cancer Trials. RIP to an Irish racing great.

Racing has lost another gentleman and legend today. Very sad to hear of the passing of @patjsmullen, he was very good to me when I was at Dermot Weld's.
My deepest condolences to Francis and his children, his family and many friends. RIP Pat https://t.co/KGRNGHxYz1

So incredibly sad to learn of Pat Smullen's passing. I was lucky enough to sit down with him for a morning last year and it was a meeting I'll never forget. An incredibly kind, brave and inspirational man. My deepest sympathies to his family. May Pat rest in peace
