Ridgewood wins the 1949 St Leger
« on: Jun 19 - 2017 »
I mentioned this a few years ago but didnt have the video,it shows Ridgewood winning the St Leger in 1949.Ridgewood was owned by mr smiths father Geoffrey,the article is from an article from the Harrogate Advertiser mentioning him buying drinks for everyone!.May be that the pub in Doncaster was named after the horse?.

The Ridgewood in Edenthorpe was indeed named after the horse. The is a picture of it on the pub sign.
