Running the good race
The side-saddle flat race at this weekend’s Southdown and eridge point-to-point (Town & Country, February 22) has been renamed in honour of its founder, following her death in a hunting accident. Sue Webb was killed on March 4 when her horse fell at a hedge with the Mid-surrey Farmers Draghounds.
The race, at Godstone in Surrey on Sunday, April 9, has now been renamed The Sue Webb Memorial Dash, says her friend Angela Wells. ‘We had been planning and meeting up in a local pub full of excitement for months. We all miss her dreadfully and are hoping that it’ll be a really fun day, just as we’re sure Sue would wish.’
The dash has attracted entries from all over the UK and beyond, she adds, including the leading Irish rider, Susan Oakes. FW
