Interesting bit of Succubus related trivia…

I just found this bit of trivia interesting…

On December 27th, Wales’ most famous horse race, the £100,000 Coral Welsh National ts to be run at the Chepstow Racecourse.

And in the distant past…

A horse named Succubus won the race…

The first horse trained in Wales to win the race was Succubus in 1914 when the race was staged at Cardiff’s Ely Racecourse.

Trained in Pembrokeshire by Freddie Lort Phillips, Succubus had actually dead-heated with Dick Dunn but in the rerun, which took place after the last race, as was the custom in those days, Succubus ran out an easy 10 lengths winner.

I just find that fascinating…

A full article on the history of this race is here.
