Black Sam Bellamy - Daughter of Lady Rebecca (Daughter of Lady Rebecca)
Golden Cap

Unwin VC,is a three year old destined to become a long distance chaser. The horse is named after the owner’s grandfather who won the VC in Gallipoli in 1915. Bob Buckler said: “He has got a lovely temperament and done everything we have asked of him easily and very willingly. We will progress him slowly and he will probably run in a bumper in December but he was bought to become a three mile long chaser, which is the sort of horse I love,”.
