Longstanding supporter of East Anglian point-to-pointing Anthony Howland Jackson died on 26 August. He was 72 and had been ill with cancer for some time.
A high flyer in the insurance industry, Anthony’s familiar green and white colours were prominent from the 1980s, but will be forever associated with St Gregory, who won 20 races for the Howland Jacksons after being bought via an advertisement in H&H.
Trained by Ruth Hayter, St Gregory won five races in 1996, six in 1997 and reached the pinnacle as a 10-year-old by securing the 1998 Grand Marnier Trophy (national leading pont-to-point horse award) with nine wins.
