  • '86 Cox Plate...


       Bonecrusher vs Our waverley star is the best head to head battle I have seen. From where they took of it was incredible that either of them could keep going, but both horses continued to find something untill the finish. 

      • Mate, how good was 1986? Not only did we get to see the mighty Bonecrusher at his best but we also saw; NSW  take the Sheffield Shield, The Two Blues win the Union, The Shark win the British Open and of course Parra take the premiership and the National Panasonic Cup - it was the stuff dreams were made of :)

  • Grate race that one Slippery , my wife loved Lonhro and always talks about this race, Beadman could not get into the clear on Lonhro and it seemed like the horse decided to take over and say. leave this to me, I'll get us home!

    Kram's post on the 86 Cox plate is also on the mark.... a legendary race that would always come up in the top 3 when this discussion arises.

    Personally I find it hard to avoid any race that Winx was in.....but most of the time she shit in. There was one race when she missed the start by 4 to 5 lengths and came from tailed off last to win in the last few strides.

    Another race that is worth watching because of the astonishing margin of 31 lengths when Secretariet won the Belmont Stakes as the third leg of the Triple Crown. Good movie as well.



  • Have a look at Chautauqua's career, what made it a remarkable horse as a sprinter was that it would get it's into unwinnable positions well back in the field or in tight pockets but it had blinding speed and would defy the odds.

    The Group 1 2017 TJ Smith was just remarkable, if you love sport it sends a shiver up your spine...250m out it's last in behind a wall of runners at least 7 lengths behind with no momentum then the joc finds a small gap and it just explodes, one of the best runs you'll ever see and a great race call.

    Enjoy ....

    • Yes great memories there Embers and a really good choice.... I think I backed him that day and had certainly given up. He also won Hong Kong's biggest sprint race at Shatin with a very similar sprint..... shame that he was a gelding because he didn't want to race at the finish of his career..... Wayne Hawkes one of his co trainers reckons he was the smartest horse he has ever come across..... my guess is if he wasn't gelded he probably would not have won a race. He was a real character!

      • That's some sorta finish!!! I guess you'd call that a pretty well timed run - that's how Parra will finish this year :)

        I have to put this one in. I was at a picnic meeting at Rose Hill on the day - my mate turned to me and said "Jesus - talk about witnessing history!" I loved The Diva with all my heart and I have had the cherished privilege of giving her a pat on the forehead :)

        • Wonderful memories, wonderful horse, wonderful ride!
