Trainer (T),  Jockey (J)

Also Known As:  Fred Webb

Associated Places:  Ethelreda House, Newmarket

Description:

Frederic Webb was apprenticed to Mathew Dawson at Heath House, Newmarket. His first important season was in 1869 when he won 27 races including the Cesarewitch. Webb's win on Mr James Merry's Doncaster was unexpected because James Snowden was engaged to ride him, but was too drunk to do so. In 1877 his wins included the Northumberland Plate, the Goodwood Cup and the Doncaster Cup on Hampton.

Webb's other Classic success came in 1881 with Peregrine in the 2000 Guineas.


Webb began training in 1895 for Mrs Lillie Langtry, Lord Shrewsbury and other owners at Ethelreda House in Newmarket, and later went to Hungary to train for Prince Thurn and Taxis.
