Phil Collington wins Epsom Amateur Derby
Fifteen runners and riders lined up at Epsom this afternoon for the Tompkins and May Amateur Derby in only its second year of running as a true amateur Derby open to all amateur gentlemen riders which provided a vintage race.
Many congratulations to Phil Collington and Lucinda Featherstone on their great victory with Maybe I Wont. Phil, along with the other eventual placed horses, played a waiting game and tracked the front runners until turning for home.
Pictured (top) rounding Tattenham Corner, Phil (on the outside in maroon and white) bides his time to come with a run and storm clear in the last few strides to win, giving trainer Lucinda Featherstone a memorable 1-2 with stablemate Arashi 2nd ridden by her son Jonathon, and King’s Masque and Robert Williams in 3rd.
