Racing industry farewells Cunnamulla trainer

RACING industry stalwart and former country trainer from Cunnamulla, Barry Miller, died in Brisbane on Monday at age 78, after a long illness.

Throughout his career, Miller trained around 1000 winning horses on tracks across Australia and was a dominant figure in Queensland racing for three decades, alongside his younger brother Trevor.

Racing Queensland CEO Brendan Parnell said Mr Miller was a leading example for grassroots' participants, after making the transition from country trainer to multiple Group One winner.

"On behalf of Chairman Steve Wilson, myself and all at Racing Queensland I wish to extend my deepest condolences to Barry's wife, Edna, his children and grandchildren,” Mr Parnell said.

Miller is best known for training Show A Heart, a Group One-winning stallion of the early 2000s.

Miller was considered to be a true horseman and started his career in Cunnamulla before moving to Brisbane in the 1970s.

His funeral will be held next week.
