Grey Affair never won a race under 2000 metres and trainer Jim Atkins believes he is the best genuine stayer produced in Queensland. Atkins always rued that Grey Affair could not handle the reverse way of going in Melbourne or he would have won a big Cup. Grey Affair won the Chipping Norton Stakes, Brisbane Cup, Doomben Cup, Queensland Cup, Frazer Handicap, QTC Metropolitan Handicap, and Warwick Farm Autumn Stakes. He was a very good wet track horse and his win in the Chipping Norton Stakes was on one of the heaviest tracks ever seen in Sydney. Grey Affair also gave star apprentice Gary Palmer his first Group 1 win when they combined to win the 1977 Doomben Cup.
