Racing: Three kings of steeplechasing are joined in a cause

Click to follow
COMBINING the spirit of Christmas with a fitting racing motif is not the simplest task, so appending the title 'We Three Kings' to Susan Crawford's painting of Arkle, Red Rum and Desert Orchid, is a reasonable attempt in a worthy cause. The painting forms the cover of this year's Injured Jockeys Fund Christmas card. Sales of the card and calendar, which features seven paintings by the late Peter Biegel, provide the bulk of the fund's income. Last year, the fund's investment income was pounds 241,000 and it paid out pounds 359,000 in grants.

Orders (cards pounds 4 per pack of 10, calendars pounds 5 each, inc P&P) should be sent to: The Injured Jockeys Co Ltd, 4a High St, Welwyn, Herts, AL6 9HE.
