Remember how it used to be those were the days.

Maori's Idol video series the King of the Trotters run on  the original right hand turn track at Albion Park. :no1:

I remember the gallopers running around that lovely little sand track.  Some horse took to it like ducks to water, others were completely at sea.  Pardon Me was one of my favourites there in the sixties.  (That was the decade I lived in Brissie.)

Yes the Creek was in a world of its own lots of great creekers  some couldn't get hot on the grass although there were exceptions Lucky Ring won a Stradbroke maybe two...the First division was the main race usually mid afternoon  followed by the Second division then the  Third division and Fourth division ended the day.

There's a treasure trove on harness racing from the golden days of the sport it's pure gold to be found on You Tube...this is just a taste.

Apologies Arsie I didn't see this thread.


On many nights I've sat on my laptop - kegerator right behind me - and gone for a trip down memory lane.


Whether it be thoroughbred or harness, YouTube is fantastic. 


It's times like that when I miss my Dad the most.
