Trainer N.J. Doyle
Only one person at Eagle Farm on Stradbroke Handicap day 1989 thought Don’t Play hadn’t won the famous Group 1 race - the judge. Don’t Play appeared to have won clearly but the race went to Robian Steel who finished fast out wide on the track. It was a pity because Don’t Play deserved to win a Group 1 race being one of the most consistent gallopers of the late 1980s. His best wins included the N.J.C Cameron Handicap, Ascot Handicap, Doomben Stakes and Defence Force Cup.
