A racehorse trainer who rode in the longest horse race in the world, will be talking about her experience in Newmarket to raise money for St Nicholas Hospice Care.
Alex Embiricos, whose parents owned Aldaniti, ridden to victory in the Grand Ntaional by Bob Champion, will be at Palace House Mews on Thursday, October 24, to talk about her challenge. There is no charge for tickets but donations for the hospice would be appreciated.
Forty-five-year-old Alex took part in the 1,000 km race with a group of 30 and has so far raised around £12,000 for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust. During the race she tore four ligaments in both ankles and ruptured her calf muscle.
“I finished in nine days and I was very proud to have done so,” she said.
