It is a shame that Salford Mill’s name has been wiped from the records of the Racing Post. Comes up as Helene Mascot, even for the Derby.
I once went on a stable visit to David Elsworth’s at Whitsbury. Where I got bitten by Salford City! My own fault. Still had the bruise three weeks later.
My mother went to the village school with David Elsworth. I say school, it was one classroom with less than 20 kids. I believe he then moved to Ludgershall and went on to Tidworth School at the same time as Richard Hannon?
My father was at Great Shefford at the time Lester was there.
Heres something that might interest you ginger, was speaking to elsie about his horses hes had through his hands, and asked him about where he got the name idea from one of his horses and he replied "it was named after a girl i went to school with"
If you dont mind me asking what is your mothers name?
