28th September 2011

Do you remember that extraordinary day in 1996? The bookies certainly do.

On 28th September 1066 William , Duke of Normandy, landed at Pevensey on the Sussex coast before going on to defeat Harold. On the same day in 1996 an Italian conquered Ascot by winning all seven races on the card.

The National Horseracing Museum has on display some great mementos from that day. But why only four?
