Trainer R.W. Conquest
Honest Man’s win in the 1962 QTC Derby put his trainer Ron Conquest in an elite group - to train and ride Group 1 winners. Conquest had won two Stradbroke Handicaps on the great Lucky Ring in the 1950s. Honest Man won the feature Grange Plate, Lonergan Stakes and Sapling Stakes at two. He later raced in Cairns where he won the Newmarket.
