South Africa: Talented young Kimberley-based trainer Sean Miller has died after jumping from a moving vehicle in the early hours of Sunday morning. He was 23.

Captain Brower of Kimberley police station said: “Seemingly he suspected that the security guards posted at the stables were sleeping and he asked his girlfriend to drive him there in a Land Cruiser pick-up.

“When they got there, one of the guards ran off and they chased him. When they got close Sean jumped out of the back of the pick-up. He was not killed straightaway but died in the ambulance taking him to hospital.”

Miller took over the training operation on the death of his father Peter in April last year. Since then he had trained 108 winners including 92 this season. The highlight was a six-timer at local course Flamingo Park seven weeks ago.
