Racehorse trainer Michael Scudamore, grandson of the Scudamore horse racing dynasty, trained Mike Tindall’s Welsh National winning horse Monbeg Dude to victory and which romped into third place at the Grand National.
Midlands Air Ambulance Charity has a long tradition of supporting the horse racing world and has become a familiar sight at the Cheltenham Festival and racecourse each year. For the last two years the Midlands Air Ambulance aircrew has been based on standby at the racecourse during Festival week.
Michael Scudamore whose yard is based at Bromsash near Ross On Wye in Herefordshire said; “It is an honour and a great privilege to be able to support the valuable work of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and to help raise awareness to the wider public and the horse racing community. The equestrian world in its many forms and disciplines are incredibly indebted to the work of the air ambulance, its pilots, paramedics and doctors who provide lifesaving emergency medical care.
He continued: “Over the years we have seen many serious injuries with riders and jockeys who have fallen from their horses and so it is comforting to know that we have such a wonderful emergency medical service provided by the Midlands Air Ambulance across Herefordshire and the five other counties. I fully support the amazing work of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.”
