Christopher Mordaunt, Sophie’s father dies
One of Whitcoombe House Stable’s biggest supporters died this evening. No one followed every runner and applauded every success here as much as Christopher did. When things were going less well he always found something positive to say to rally us. He thought nothing of sitting at the yard gate for hours in the freezing cold on Lambourn Open Day selling tickets. Every visitor was met with his customary smile and friendly banter. Just as everyone he ever met in life was. Which is why not having him around any more will affect so very many people and not just his family who he adored.
