I was out at Randwick that day and watched the race in front of the QE2 stand.
It was really like watching Kingston Town win.
He only had 10 starts subsequent to that win, winning 6 of them including the Hollindale and Doomben Cup in Qld, and later in the year the Chelmsford, Caulfield Stakes, Cox Plate and VRC QE2.
He was off the scene for nearly 2 years and had only 2 runs before they decided to retire him.
Some of his contemporaries were dual "Cups" winner Doriemus, 13 time Group 1 winner Tie The Knot, 8 time Group 1 winner Intergaze, 4 time Group 1 winner Juggler (who was placed in an incredible 10 Group 1s), 4 time Group 1 winner Dane Ripper, dual Group 1 winners Catalan Opening and Champagne, triple Group 1 winner Tycoon Lil.
He won the Caulfield Cup mentioned above officially by 10.1 lengths.
We have had recent discussions on "good 3yo crops". Might And Power was a 1993 foal by Zabeel, and that year's crop included:
Mouawad (also by Zabeel and 3 time G1 winner more famous for being Octagonal's full brother)
Ebony Grosve (also by Zabeel and Derby/McKinnon winner)
Dashing Eagle (Flight/Thousand Guineas winner who I was talking about during the past week with her last named foal beginning her career)
Merlene (Golden Slipper winner)
Alfa (Tasmanian 2 and 3yo champ who won the Caulfield Guineas before being sent to be trained on the mainland - I think it was with Bart but happy to be corrected)
Markham (SA Derby winner, Melb Cup placed)
Assertive Lass (Coolmore Classic and dead heated with Dashing Eagle in the Flight)
Danendri (Vinery/Oaks double)
Bezeal Bay (Cantala)
Magic Of Sydney (G1 Champion Stks)
In spite of only being a year apart in age, I don't think he ever raced against Octagonal.
