TOP jockeys and racing pundits backed a winner from Bury at Great Yarmouth race course yet it did not move an inch.
The winner was King Edward VI School’s carousel horse, Jubilee.
The school was one of 30 from all over East Anglia who took on the task of renovating a carousel horse from Pleasurewood Hills theme park in Great Yarmouth.
Art students had to have their design approved by the park, then complete the project to a deadline, like a commercial commission. The completed horses were then judged by jockeys and racing experts at a race meeting and Jubilee won.
The school’s head of visual arts Kate Brown said: “It’s a real credit to the students. It was a tough competition and there were some good horses there.”
A Pleasurewood Hills spokeswoman said: “A lot of hard work had been done over the last few months with all the entries. Jubilee was a worthy winner and we would like to congratulate King Edward VI School on the remarkable job they did.”
