Alumni Point-to-Point Success

27 Feb 2019

Former Witham pupil George Chatterton had a day to remember on Sunday (24 Feb) when winning the Conditions Race at the Cottesmore Point-to-Point Races, held at Garthorpe. George, who went on to Oundle after Witham, and is now studying Economics at Durham University, is enjoying a superb start to his first season as an amateur jockey. Riding the family-owned Minella Friend, his positive ride saw the horse notch up a third victory of the season in bold style. A large gathering of family members and friends from both former schools as well as a healthy number of current and former Witham families were present, and provided a rousing return to the winners’ enclosure!  Horse and jockey are set to return to Garthorpe for the Belvoir Hunt meeting on 24th March.
