Members of an Old Brentwood racing syndicate are celebrating after their racehorse, 'Sir Antony Browne', won his debut race in impressive style at Kempton Park.
Sir Antony Browne, named after the founder of Brentwood School, and jockey Thomas Bellamy
romped home to victory in the 4.25 at Kempton Park last Friday, 12th February, at odds of 9/1 .
The chestnut gelding is owned by the Incipe Partnership which is made up of Old Brentwoods
David Anderson, Jon Boughtwood, Patrick Bowler, Nigel Bunter, Bob Bowden, Jimmy Harris and Phil Needham.
The old school friends also own bay gelding William Hunter named after the well-known Brentwood Protestant, William Hunter, whose death was ordered by Sir Antony Browne and prompted him to found Brentwood School.
Both horses are in training with Alan King at the Barbury Castle Stables in Wiltshire which is owned by Nigel Bunter. William Hunter has had one unplaced run to date.
Mr Needham said: “Sir Antony Browne is now entered in a valuable race at Newbury on the 5th March and we hope he will be fit and in good form to take part.” The whole of Brentwood School, and its thousands of alumni, will be cheering him on.
