Ely-ation for Cambridge: Light Blues Again Make it Four out of Four
27 April 2021

Tim Koch sees Cambridge happy with a 2:2.
At Ely last Sunday, there was, in the words of Oscar Hammerstein, “a bright golden haze on the meadow” as the Cambridgeshire fens witnessed wins for Goldie by six lengths and Blondie by seven lengths in the Oxbridge reserves races, the 56th Isis v Goldie contest for the men and the 49th Osiris v Blondie fixture for the women. The event was not publicised in case it attracted non-socially distanced spectators.
In a crumb of comfort for Oxford, they won the men’s “spare pair” race (though not the women’s).
