Bunhill: Restless Lester

Click to follow
JUST a footnote to our story elsewhere in this issue that Lester Pigott is having to cough up even more money to the Inland Revenue: he has also changed his auditors three times.

He went from Stoy Hayward, one of the country's bigger accountancy practices, to a firm in Newmarket, and then last year he changed again - this time to a practice in Northwood, Middlesex.

I'm sure there's a story here somewhere.

This either suggests a curious restlessness on the veteran jockey's part, or a reluctance on the part of the financial scorekeepers to act for him. Both are hard to believe of such a placid gentlemen.
