Regular visitors to Barbury need little introduction to Charlotte Fuller, a stalwart of the Vine & Craven Hunt and its Barbury fixture, and a professional trainer in her own right. 

Charlotte has trained 13 Point-to-Point winners, the most recent of which was Winter Holiday at Knightwick at the start of the season. But during last year, she also took out a professional licence with a view to training some of her own horses under Rules. 

As if to prove the point, Our Three Sons became her first recorded winner at Plumpton on Sunday in the unremarkable Class 5 Brewers Decorator Centre Cup Handicap Hurdle, under the guidance of daughter and professional jump jockey Page. This sadly unreported event should have a postscript which we are pleased to add.

Our Three Sons wins at Plumpton

The Fuller family have a long history of hunting and racing. Richard Fuller, part of the brewing family behind the growth of iconic beer brand London Pride before its sale to a South East Asian corporation a few years back, has been a mainstay of the Vine & Craven hunt for many years, and a huge supporter of Barbury, and Hackwood Park before that. 

Charlotte, his wife, has run social media for the Vine & Craven fixture, trained winners between the flags and done just about every job on a racecourse in pursuit of the furtherance of the sport.

Page needs less introduction to regular spectators. Last season was her first as a professional jockey, one of a number of young women making their mark in the top flight of the Jumps game. Her attachment to Jamie Snowden's Lambourn yard has reaped dividends, with 17 winners and a best ever prize money haul of over £190k in 10 seasons' riding. 

The Plumpton ride for her mother was a comeback from injury incurred in March, which required an operation. That, combined with a dose of Covid, has kept her off the track for over a month, but if there's a good time to be out, this was probably it. 

 

Looks like congratulations are appropriate all round.
