While we have been flat out working horses and preparing for Good Fridays "open day" we have also been busy using new software for our website. 

"George" spent thirty two years as first jockey to Sir Mark Prescott in Newmarket.  Nowhere in the often fickle and frequently disloyal world we live in, especially in sports such as horseracing has there been a partnership to match that of Sir Mark and George.



The video below was compiled by Alastair Down from Channel Four Racing on behalf of Sir Mark Prescott and was shown on the occasion of George’s retirement when Sir Mark hosted a wonderful lunch, attended by all of his owners who gathered at the Jockey Club Rooms to celebrate George's illustrious career.

Thanks to our new website and software we are able to share this previously unseen video, we  hope you enjoy watching it.
