Actually, Collins English Dictionary seems to have lifted the definition of KYBO almost verbatim from the Australian Macquarie Dictionary.
But there are plenty of dictionaries which don't list KYBO. It doesn't appear in any of the Oxford English Dictionary, Webster's Third New International Dictionary, Webster's Second Edition, Chambers Dictionary, Random House Dictionary, Dictionary of American Regional English and the Canadian Oxford Dictionary.
A couple of us would be detailed to dig a temporary KYBO with a WW2 trenching tool while the rest of us gathered firewood for the campfire we would use to sizzle sausages for our meal and then sit around singing out of tune and being regaled with ghost stories.
And now to my take on the origin of KYBO. I believe it to be a term deliberately coined by the YMCA hierarchy in the USA and exported along with other protocols to YMCA camps in other countries, including Australia.
Barrott's successor, Champion, scored his first big-race wins for the yard on Tiepolino, Kybo and Approaching, who landed the Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup in 1978.
Kybo, the best hurdler Gifford trained, had a name that was an acronym for the advice given to owner Isidore Kerman as a schoolboy by his mother - keep your bowels open.
Kybo continued to acquit himself with honour among a golden generation of hurdlers, finishing second behind Monksfield at Aintree in the Colt Sigma Hurdle and third to Bird's Nest and Sea Pigeon in the Scottish Champion Hurdle.
Six of many big winners trained by Josh Gifford (clockwise from top left): Aldaniti (1981 Grand National), Bradbury Star (1994 Mackeson Gold Cup), Brief Gale (1995 SunAlliance Chase), Deep Sensation (1993 Queen Mother Champion Chase), Kybo (1978 Christmas Hurdle) and Vodkatini (1988 Grand Annual Chase)
After a freelance spell, he joined Josh Gifford's stable for the 1974/75 season and Saturday's marvellous win follows successes like the Hennessy with Approaching, the SGB Chase with Henry Bishop and the SGB and Christmas Hurdles on Kybo.
It was Kybo who proved one of the crucial horses in Champion's comeback this season.
Small fields on the firm ground at Ascot and an easy win in the conditions hurdle for Kybo, owned by lawyer Isidore Kerman.
Kybo, who was trained by Josh Gifford, returned to Ascot the following month for another win and he then landed the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton.
It has taken him almost nine years, but yesterday former champion jockey Josh Gifford finally got his name on the Festival scoresheet as a trainer with the success of Kybo
in the Champion Hurdle.
