Good luck to Bryony Frost!

Published on 17th March 2021

As Cheltenham Festival continues this week, DCT is sending our support to LOVE Devon ambassador, Bryony Frost!

Bryony faces the biggest day of her developing Racing career so far on Friday when she partners Frodon in the blue riband event of the Cheltenham Festival, the Gold Cup. Bryony and Frodon have tasted success at Cheltenham three times already but nothing would compare to victory in this event. Bryony will be up against the equine and human might of Ireland, including the favourite, Al Boum Photo, who will going for his third consecutive success in the race. However she and her beloved “Frod” have been the underdogs before and are a true partnership, “a marriage made in heaven” according to Frodon’s trainer Paul Nichols. Horse and rider really operate as one in this case.

Bryony has attended many events on behalf of DCT and Love Devon in previous years and we have been in awe of her successes over that time. We are all hoping we can celebrate with her at a future date as our communities begin to return to a semblance of normality, and even if we can't be there in person supporting her on Friday, we are all cheering her on!

With best wishes,

Nicola Gurr, Chair of Trustees, Devon Communities Together
