Jockey: Sam Wragg

sam-wraggSam Wragg rode several winners in 1935 for Mr Ben Warner of which the most notable was Free Fare. The second of the three famous brothers (see also Nos. 7 and 9 of this series) Sam served his apprenticeship with R. W. Colling’s stable at Newmarket. One of his earliest victories as an apprentice was gained at the Warwick Meeting of 1926, the same event being won twelve months later by his younger brother, Arthur.

In 1930 he won the Liverpool Autumn Cup on Hot Bun, and the Oaks of 1933 on Charelaine. He was also successful on Lady Ludlow’s Greenore in three races during 1935, including the Steward’s Cup, Goodwood, and the Ayr Gold Cup.
