London barrister Barnaby Shaw enjoyed the taste of success twice at Saturday’s Siddington Point-to-Point, picking up the Bar Challenge Cup for owning the winner in the fifth race, and a crate of beer for riding Bravery Scotch to victory.
Shaw and Bravery Scotch romped home in The Pegasus Club Members Race, a unique competition in point-to-point racing, as it is open only to members of the The Pegasus Club – a members club for legal professionals formed in 1895 – or their spouses or descendants.
The barrister, a member of the Meynell and South Staffordshire Hunt who had his first ride in 2012 at the age of 41, bought Bravery Scotch a year ago from Worcester-based trainer Zoe Hammond. He won his first race on Bravery Scotch back in February, at the confined race at North Carlton.
The trophy was presented by land agent Chris Graham of race sponsor Moore Allen & Innocent of Cirencester, and Peter Kenworthy-Browne, a former president of The Pegasus Club.
