George Baker

The 6.10 at Leicester is not usually history making. Very little in Leicester is, today.

(I once arrived a couple of hours early for a conference in Leicester. With time to spare, I asked the woman at the reception desk where I should go. I was thinking of perhaps visiting Simon de Montfort's grave. She looked at me and said, deadpan: "Get the train to London and back".)

But today, in the 6.10 race at Leicester, something unique will happen. A two year old called George Baker will run, trained by George Baker, and ridden by another George Baker.

Sadly, his odds of 20/1 are a pretty accurate representation of his chances.
