Theo Fennell designs trophy for Newbury’s richest race

Theo Fennell has designed and created the winner’s trophy for the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes, billed as the richest  horse race of the season.

The race takes place at Newbury Racecourse on May 16.

The hand-crafted, solid silver trophy was developed using traditional silversmithing techniques by a team of craftsmen. It also features hand-engraved detailing and a London hallmark.

Theo Fennell commented: “We are thrilled at Theo Fennell to have been commissioned to design and handcraft the Al Shaqab Lockinge trophy. We feel the piece reflects the importance of the race, the traditions of Newbury Racecourse and the deep commitment of Al Shaqab to this great sport. It has been a joy to have been involved in this project.”

Harry Herbert, racing advisor to Al Shaqab Racing, said: “The Al Shaqab Lockinge is a race very close to our hearts having won it last year with Olympic Glory. Being a very prestigious race, we felt it was essential to honour the achievements of the winner appropriately and what better way to do that than with a trophy designed and made by the world famous British jeweller, Theo Fennell.”
