You may like to see the faces of those who run Chasing Gold, so here are a few details about Tom and Val Chadney
Tom formed Chasing Gold Racing Club back
in January 2006. He has been involved in racing for over 30 years, initially as
an owner on the Flat but soon discovered the delights of National Hunt racing
and sent his horses to Robert and Sally Alner in Dorset. He later sponsored
their yard through his firm of independent financial advisers, Chadney Bulgin,
and on his retirement decided to start a Racing Club linked to the Alner yard.
Originally we had only two horses in training (Mibleu and One Dream) but as
membership increased so did the number of horses.
Val is an organiser and has expertise in IT so she has been able to set up and maintain the Chasing Gold website as well as run all the administration for the Racing Club. She shares Tomís passion for horse racing and football and accompanies him to all events both at the racecourse or in the stadium. She also enjoys playing golf and is a member at North Hants Golf Club.
Val also makes costume jewellery and has supplied many Chasing Gold members - and others - with necklaces, bracelets and ear-rings in their racing colours. Take a look at the "Racing Jewellery" page to see some of her designs. She would be delighted to discuss your requirements, so why not get in touch?
Val has two sons in their thirties who also like to visit White Hart Lane whenever they get the opportunity, and also enjoy horse racing.
