Col. Giles Loder at Epsom races

It is said that Col. Giles Loder had two passions in his life, High Beeches and horse racing. His horse, Spion Kop, had won the Epsom Derby in 1920 with the celebrated Newmarket trainer, Peter Gilpin.
The photograph shows Giles Loder on the right, with Victor Gilpin, who had taken over the training yard from his father, Peter.
Both are suitably attired with binoculars hung around the necks, and, as it is the British summer, umbrellas are at the ready.
