Ebony and Charlotte stood to win one of the most coveted horse racing trophies in the county.
However, someone started spreading rumours that Ebony was injected with enhance performance drugs in the hope that they would be disqualified from entering and favourite Sean Pigman and his steed Bountiful would romp home.
Carl Raynor, retired rider and trainer, had other ideas, and with the accusations unproven, Charlotte did indeed ride to victory, though Bountiful was a close second.
The Headline in the local newspaper read:
How’s this for a photo finish?

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
