History books from the early 20th century rate Johno Stone the best judge of pace seen on a racetrack. He rode many winners for his father "Honest John" Stone. A natural lightweight he also had a great strike rate in all feature races.
Some of his best wins included four Brisbane Cups (Jessie, Scorcher, Haidee, Fightaway), four Stradbroke Handicaps (Darelong, Jessie's Dream, Storm King and Line Gun), three QTC Derby's (Joyance, Braw Laddie, Maritoria), two QTC Guineas (Joyance, Yeena Lad), two Hopeful Stakes (Joyance, Minnow), two Summer Cups (Auburn, Royal Ned), the Moreton Handicap (Flotation), QTC St Leger (Oak Grafton), Autumn Stakes (Rolad), Brisbane Handicap (Royal Squire), QTC Newmarket (Limited), Southport Handicap (Royal Ned), QTC Newmarket (Limited), Autumn Stakes (Roland) and Brisbane Handicap (The Squire). These were the major races at the time and it should be remembered there was no Doomben. The only other racetrack was Albion Park.
