      "Manny was responsible for me coming into racing," Mercer recalls. "Major Sneyd, who trained near Lambourn, had asked Manny if there were any more like him at home. He put my name forward, and, at the age of 12, I came down during a school holiday and didn't go back. I was his apprentice from 1947 to '54."
