Carthorse Derby at Handcross 1960

I have no idea who this happy fellow is attending one of the Carthorse Derbys in Handcross, but I think he had a few bob on the winner.
The Large Version is of Len Dowdeswell, winner of the 1952 race, in the unsaddling enclosure. Well, it would have been called that if they had used saddles!
