Minding the True Equus Zone:

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT
JMC: Leslie Evershed - Martin (1903 - 1991) the founder of Chichester Festival Theatre was an optician, he knew nothing at all about British horseracing. As neither could he ride or handle racehorses in training. He was bloodhorse illiterate. It could be said that the very last thing on Evershed-Martin’s mind when he was planning to build his Theatre, was horseracing. He would have been fully aware of this Glorious Goodwood meeting. A meeting that catered for big crowds of people once a year, he would no doubt have been able to learn something from that side of things. He was not a horseman. And undoubtedly never presumed to be one.
