Trainer E.G. Boland

10 wins

Raced 1970s

Will go down in history for the call of Bert Bryant who said in the 1975 Melbourne Cup: "And Moore takes Contere to the lead." The Moore was Brisbane jockey Bill Moore and Contere faded to finish with the tailenders in the Cup won by Think Big. But Contere deserved his place in the Melbourne Cup after showing himself to be a bold front running stayer in the previous season winning the 1974 QTC Fraser-Queensland Cup double and four other Brisbane staying races. He later won the QTC Metropolitan and a feature race at Albion Park.
