Historic Hunt Ball


The Vine and Craven Hunt Ball was held at the historic Donnington Grove Hotel on the night before the Hennessy Gold Cup. Many of the party goers had been at Newbury Races earlier to see the Vine and Craven Hounds parade and returned on Saturday to see Huntsman, David Trotman, lead in Diamond Harry after winning the Hennessy.


Links between hunting and racing have always been strong and the Hunt runs two point to points (horse racing for amateurs), one in February just outside Marlborough and the other on Easter Monday at Hackwood Park, just outside Basingstoke.
