RE: ARTHUR LYDIARD OR JACK DANIELS?
I can only think that you didn't know Arthur personally. I did and can't think that anything could be further from the truth than your observation, and if you've read most of this thread you know that the others on here who knew him would say the same thing.
The comment about arrogance has come up in other places. Arthur was very, very, sure of his ideas as aplied to training and racing, so he wasn't one to spend a lot of time considering other opinions, especially if he'd considered that opinion himself decades before and concluded there wasn't much to it. He had a direct style of speaking which wasn't always diplomatice, i.e. he got right to the point and told you he didn't think much of an idea if he really didn't. But he really was an extremely modest, humble person in all other ways. I could tell you several stories to that point if there was enough time.
