Marco Polo-Lucky Penny
Trainer F. O’Neill
Won the 1961 QTC St Leger after a great ride by jockey Neil Birrer. It was the last St Leger for more than 20 years before race was re-instated. (It was later scrapped again). Penny Polo was good enough to win two more races at Eagle Farm and both were - "mile" features the Sandgate Handicap and Brisbane Handicap.
