You have to wonder how much more reputation shredding ‘Greedy Teddy’ Derby is prepared to take before he gets the message and gives up his plan to concrete over a Newmarket green field.
In the Daily Mail Diary today he is called ‘an awful man’. On Monday John Gosden called him Greedy in his acceptance speech for the International Trainer of the Year award.
Many leading figures in Racing including legendary commentator Sir Peter O’Sullevan have condemned the plan. And the local Council have rejected the Planning Application once already.
The people of Newmarket and the racing industry are united against him and will not give up. It’s time his PR Mark Bolland had a serious word with Greedy Teddy.
