I think he actually used to say; "Lost a quid and found a 'trey'

I can see why you took this photograph Jll1.

He is certainly atypical for most who attended Eagle Farm racing in the late 70s and early 80s.

Since we are surmising,  I'd say he looks more like the bodyguard of someone.

Yes, ianb, he does look like a bodyguard and someone that I'd rather not tangle with. He has seen me and my camera. He is showing his displeasure at being photographed and that worked in my favour. I like the contrast between his stern look and that happy smile on Little Mr Fourex.

I'm assuming that these two ladies brought their own foldable chairs to the races.

This is the front lawn area at Eagle Farm. If you look closely you will see a black diagonal line cutting through the picture. This is a wire that was used to transport film from the photo-finish camera up to a darkroom. The film was processed and a print made in a couple of minutes. The print was posted in a display board for the punters. This is critically important stuff in close finishes with bags of money at stake.
