(Sports Page) – On Tuesday 23rd March, the late Dinsdale DINSEY HONEY TONGUE Liburd, was laid to rest.
Referred to as an ardent ‘Horseman’, the Nevis Turf and Jockey Club paid special tribute, to honour his memory.
First of all, members of the club bore the coffin, appropriately attired in specially designed T-shirts.
A special tribute was read by Roosevelt FELT Daniel, who outlined the many contributions made by the deceased in lifting the level of horseracing on the island.
He was the one who brought thoroughbred horses to Nevis, which ultimately lifted the level of competition at the Indian Castle race track.
The formal eulogy was read by David Grant who noted that although he was born in Brown Hill Village, he migrated to the USVI in order to make a better life, but never forgot Nevis.
His visits were frequent and he made his presence felt at Horse races on a regular basis.
Some of the horses he owned that served to thrill the many fans of Horse racing were: Respect, Boss the world; Judge; High Voltage and Lady Hamilton, to name a few.
‘He was known for his hospitality, kindness and his generosity,’ Grant stated.
