MacDonald, William

1800-1856

William - always known as 'Mac' - was born in Shoreditch and served his time with Samuel Pearce.
He won the 1840 Derby on Little Wonder - which was almost certainly a 4-y-o - and was presented with a whip after by Prince Albert.
He also took part with no little success in riding and driving trotting races.
He was married and later became a trainer at Epsom.
