Ron Conquest

The Basics

Categories: Trainers
Region: South East Queensland


honest man, lucky ring

When Honest Man won the 1962 QTC Derby it wrote Ron Conquest into the record books. He is one of only three Queenslanders since WWII to have ridden and trained a Group 1 winner. As an apprentice Conquest, a member of one of Queensland's most famous racing families, had won the Stradbroke twice on his father's horse Lucky Ring. As a trainer Conquest rarely had a big team but produced plenty of winners. In particular he had many good "creekers" including horses such as Timuret and Prince Talent. His son Philip was a leading apprentice jockey in the early 1970s before weight forced him out of the saddle. Ron Conquest's best wins as a trainer included the QTC Derby (Honest Man), McDougall Stakes (Tovala Queen), Ross Stakes (Merry Red), Doomben Stakes (Blazing Steel), Hawthorne Handicap (Cornflower), QTC Apprentices' Cup (Foreign Port), Contere Handicap (Saunders Blue) and Gold Coast Cup (Saunders Blue).
