What horse and jockey won the local derby at Northolt racecourse on the 30th June 1937?

Answer: Northolt racecourse was built in 1929 by William Bass and Viscount Lascelles at Northolt Park for the purposes of pony racing.

As it was not used for horse racing under rules no official records have been kept. During the second world war the course was taken over by the military and never opened again as a racecourse.

However David August, Racing Editor of the Daily Mail has found a reference to a horse called Ecklestone who won a Northolt Derby in the 1930s which was trained by Steve Donoghue’s son.
