The Stratford Cup
The Committee recently agreed to accept a very kind donation of a new trophy from Ken Kwok.
Ken is a long standing Serpentine member and was keen to donate a cup to the Serpentine Handicap in particular. He suggested it in recognition of James Stratford as starter of the Handicap for many years - and James is delighted to be recognised in this way.
So 'The Stratford Cup' will be presented to the athlete who acheives the highest average age-grading in the Handicap over 6 races in each calendar year. So the next Handicap (Saturday 6th June), and all subsequent and previous Handicaps this year, will allow members to compete for this new cup.
Many thanks to Ken for the donation and James for his help over the years (and continuing help!). The antique cup will be placed in the club room trophy cabinet shortly.
