Born on August 30th 1950, Gormley's best known works include Angel of the North (as pictured), a public sculpture in Gateshead, erected in February 1998 and Another Place on Crosby Beach near Liverpool. The youngest of seven children, Gormley has said that his parents chose his initials 'AMDG' to have inference 'Ad maiorem Dei gloriam' - 'to the greater glory of god'. Having read archaeology, anthropology and history of art at Trinity College Cambridge, he travelled to India and Sri Lanka to learn more about Buddhism (he is Roman Catholic) between 1971 and 1974.

While studying at the Slade, he met Vicken Parsons, who was to become his assistant and, in 1980, his wife, as well as a successful artist in her own right. Gormley's career began with a solo exhibition at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1981. Almost all his work takes the human body as its subject. He won the Turner Prize in 1994 with Field for the British Isles and has been a Royal Academician since 2003. 

Richard Fahey has been training for 22 years at Musley Bank, Malton and remains an ever-increasing force to be reckoned with in the Champion Trainers' standing at the end of the season. Known for his success with two-year-olds and sprinters, Richard has saddled over 30 Group race winners in the UK, Ireland, France and Canada, recent stars include Ribchester and Garswood. Richard trained Rose Blossom to win 5 times for Highclere, including Group 3 and Listed races. His yard continues on an upward curve and his motto of Inspiration, Determination and Motviation is evident whenever one is lucky enough to visit Musley Bank; visits which are exceedingly popular and highly recommended.
