Can't believe that Mount Eden hasn't been mentioned
"Mount Eden ranks as one of Australia's greatest-ever pacers - despite making just 20 starts, in addition to four time trials, in Australia and New Zealand in 1970-71 before being sold to American interests.
Of those 20 starts, he notched 14 victories.
Mount Eden holds a special place in the hearts of Goldfields pacing fans, with the superstar launching his career at the local track on September 6, 1969.
Mount Eden ran third on that occasion after galloping badly and losing 150 yards at the start.
Four nights later, Mount Eden ran fifth at the GMTC before notching his first career win in front of local trot fans on September 13.
That Kalgoorlie run was the first of 13 victories in his next 14 starts - the only blemish during that span being a fourth behind eventual winner Cawarra at Gloucester Park on March 7, 1970.
In the 1971 Miracle Mile at Harold Park, Mount Eden produced arguably his most famous run.
After losing six lengths at the start, Mount Eden produced a remarkable performance to win by 15 yards.
The adoration WA pacing fans had for Mount Eden was underlined in his fourth and final time trial in April, 1971.
Despite Mount Eden's WA farewell carrying live television coverage, nearly 29,000 people turned out to Gloucester Park.
Always one for the big occasion, Mount Eden responded by setting a new State record of 1.57.8 for a mile.
That record stood until it was finally broken by Pure Steel (1.57.2) in 1978.
Mount Eden died in 1995, aged 28.
The champion's magnificent career was documented by leading Perth journalist Peter Sweeney in his book, "The Mighty Mount Eden", a couple of years ago."
