Howie the Hornet proved what we already know, that he is the King of the mascots, after winning the Mascot Derby at Lingfield Park Racecourse yesterday.

Racing against a field that included entrants from, among others, Nando’s, St John’s Ambulance, Haywards Heath Lions and the hosts’ own Archie The Horse, Β our former Olympic Champ was first past the finishing line to the delight of his supporters and his ‘trainer’, Matthew Haynes.

The event was staged to help raise the profile of The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for helping children with brain injury, who provide expert rehabilitation, education, therapy and specialist care at their centre in Tadworth, supporting children and their families across the UK.
