Racing for Charity, Charity for Community

 

INTRODUCTION

 

1852-02-03 the trophy was firstly presented in the middle of 19th century.

It was made in England by master silversmiths Henry Wilkinson & Co,.

There is an inscription “Cockspinner” on its body.

The name was an Arab pony landing the Wongneichong Stakes at the Spring Meeting.

It was ridden by Lieutenant Burdon of the Royal Navy.

The owner was Mr William Lamond, an accountant of the Oriental Bank Corporation.

1862, Mr Lamond moved to the bank’s Shanghai Branch.

The trophy later came into the ownership of a Uruguayan diplomat who served in China in the late 1800s.

Nothing was then heard of it for over a century, until it resurfaced in South America in 2003.

BACKGROUND

It was spotted at auction by a Hong Kong silver collector Mr Tobias Brown, who realized its historical value and brought it back “home”.

Mr Brown then generously donated the trophy to the Club in recognition of its longstanding commitment and contributions to the community.

The renamed trophy has since been awarded annually as a means of highlighting the Club’s community support.
