Mr Yung said, ” there is a lot more to my life than just being the owner of Silver Lining, of which I am naturally very happy and proud. I have derived enormous satisfaction and joy from owning such a splendid horse, but as I said it`s not been without its other side. For example, on the eve of every big race, I would have a bad night`s sleep-worrying not so much whether he would win or not, but rather I would hate to see him break down or anything happen to him on the track carrying those super weights between 147-152 lbs.”
SILVER LINING: A hopeful or comforting prospect in the midst of difficulty.
From the proverb “Every cloud has a silver lining”
