Piece of racing history up for sale

Date: Friday 9th June 2017

A FORMER jockey who works behind the scenes at racecourses across the North has donated an unusual piece of Grand National memorabilia to the region’s air ambulance.

The race-worn saddle cloth bearing the name of One For Arthur was carried to victory in the 2017 Grand National.

Now, signed by both jockey and trainer, the item is being sold via eBay by the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) to raise money for its life-saving missions.
