What's That No.6 Up To Now?

What's That No.6 Up To Now?

   It’s only a month to the "Village Handicap Stakes" and the Jockeys' have been putting the horses through their paces along the South Downs. My photographic colleague Number 113b managed to take the accompanying photographs with his long range telephoto lens.

     Pictured here on the South Downs are Silver Blaze, Shropshire Lad, Prancing Dandy and Penny Farthing. Alone on the Downs is the favourite Lotus Lad ridden by No.6, who hopes to win the prize of 2,000 work units together with the trophy for the "Village Handicap Stakes," the handicap being tied up as he is dragged back to the town of harmony!
    Those citizens who fancy a flutter can place a bet with the Book Makers friend;
