Sunset Hue-Shinig Gem
Trainer N.H. Strong
By Gunsynd’s sire Sunset Hue, Sunset Gem lived in the shadow of the mighty galloper. However, he was a very good stayer beating Gunsynd home in the 1970 QTC Derby when he was second to Silver Sharpe (Gunsynd finished third). Sunset Gem then won the 1970 Queensland Cup beating Zarook in a thrilling finish. Sunset Gem is the last three-year-old to win the Queensland Cup.
