A day at the races

Larkfleet Homes loves to see people having fun and to support local activities. So we were delighted to sponsor the Open Maiden race at the recent Cottesmore Point-to-Point event held at Garthorpe, not far from our HQ in Bourne.
 

The winner of the race we sponsored was a horse called Emtidaad owned by Bill Hawkins and ridden by David Mansell. There were 15 runners but Emtidaad – just four years old – romped home to win very impressively by 15 lengths.

Point-to-Point racing is a traditional rural event attracting people from the immediate locality and enthusiasts from further afield. ‘Maiden’ races are for horses that have not previously won at an event.

The Cottesmore race day is run entirely by volunteers (about 90 people are involved on the day) and is financed by race entry fees, admissions to the race course and by sponsorship – so Larkfleet’s contribution helped to keep this thriving tradition alive.

We hope punters made a few pounds backing the winner of ‘our’ race. Whether you won or lost, though – or didn’t bet at all – you can surely back a winner by making your next home a Larkfleet house!
