MICHAEL SEELY, one of the most respected and knowledgeable racing writers, died yesterday following a long illness. He was 67.

Seely joined The Times in 1975 and was appointed its racing correspondent 10 years later. He retired two years ago but continued to write for Horse And Hound.

Dick Hinder, racing editor at The Times, said: 'Michael was a marvellous character, a very colourful figure who lived life to the full. We will miss him a lot.'
