Trainer M. Barnes
He was genuinely a real stayer never winning a race under 10 ½ furlongs. He won the QTC Easter Cup and the QTC Fraser Handicap-Queensland Cup double before venturing south. With Mel Schumacher in the saddle he won the 1961 VRC Australian Cup 17 1/2 furlongs. (The race was later switched back to 14 furlongs and then to a weight for age race at 2000 metres).
