Breeder (B),  Owner (O)

Description:

Charles Newton was a great all-round sportsman. In his youth he had been the Master of the Eton College Beagles and he rowed for Oxford. On the Turf he hunted and raced between the flags, winning the first ever cross-country race at Aylesbury in 1869.

At one time Newton owned Drumcree, who finished runner-up in the Grand National of 1901. He bred Flint Jack, the two-times Ebor winner. Newton was a member of the Jockey Club and the National Hunt Committee.
