Poetic justice and the Gold Cup

 

Sir, – I would add to Frank McNally’s excellent account of the Joycean associations of the Ascot Gold Cup (An Irishman’s Diary, June 17th) another Irish literary connection. Yeats remains the only horse to have won the race four times in its 214-year history. – Yours, etc,
