Freda Loftus, wife of bookie's clerk Ted was first seen training for the pram race against the Rovers in May 1978, pushing a pram containing a sack of coal down Coronation Street (and almost being run over by a lorry on Viaduct Street). Together with Ted, they represented The Flying Horse on Jubilee Terrace. They took part in the race, and came second to Suzie Birchall and Steve Fisher. During the announcement of the winner, Ken Barlow was informed by steward Ena Sharples that Steve failed to drink his full pint on his second visit to The Flying Horse, and Suzie drank the last half. Consequently, they were disqualified and Freda and Ted were announced the winners, winning a free barrel of beer for their pub and one year's free supply of cinema tickets.
