Run­ning the good race

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

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
