Trainer H.F. Best
Responded to one of the great winter carnival rides of all time by jockey Colin O’Neill to win the 1969 Stradbroke Handicap in a blanket finish. Prince Medes loved O’Neill and the pair won 11 races. Prince Medes had finished third in the previous year’s Strabroke to the champion galloper Cabochon. His other wins included the BTC Bernborough Handicap, Tattersall’s President’s Handicap, QTC City Handicap and Randwick Cumberland Cup.
