Guy Walter's life will be celebrated, fittingly, on Friday at Warwick Farm, the track where he forged a reputation not only as one of the finest trainers in the country, but as a thorough gentleman.

Walter's funeral service will begin at 2pm in the mounting yard in front of the main grandstand, with the family keen to have it outdoors, reports Racing Network.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the day and the family has also requested that no flowers be sent to the course for the ceremony.

Walter, 59, died last Thursday morning after trackwork.

Tributes have flowed in not only from Australia, but around the world for a man remembered and respected among his peers as a genuine, humble and highly talented horseman who always had time for everyone.

The Walter family has made an express wish that no media representatives or organisations take any pictures or video footage of the ceremony.

Media are invited to pay their respects on Friday and to write about the ceremony, but the family does not wish for any pictures or broadcast footage to be taken inside the racecourse, or transmitted from the ceremony.

A wake will later be hosted by the family, Racing NSW and the ATC in the Tie the Knot Bar, Chipping Norton Room and Hobartville Bar.
