Miller's Guide site

There appears to have been some work done to the Miller's Guide site and the Past Champions section listing various racing records is back online.

Firefox reported a problem with the sites security certificate but I granted it an exemption and sailed through.

The Miller's Guide site has already been useful in correcting the record of Don Juan.

The record of 6 starts for 6 wins has been changed to 7 starts for 6 wins.  Don Juan had one start as a 2YO on Adelaide Cup day 1872 in a 12F Selling Race and was unplaced.  He did not start again for 18 months and did not race at all as a 3YO.

I have noted the above on his record given earlier in the thread and verified the information with reference to the Adelaide press on Trove.

Prince Cortauld (NZ) 1950 (late Courtauld)                                 
USA racing record unconfirmed.                                 
72 starts, 26 wins (6 x Group 1 all in Australia), 9 seconds and 11 thirds.  Win % 36.1, Place % 63.9.                                  
In Australia: 52 starts, 25 wins, 9 seconds, and 8 thirds                                 
In USA: 20 starts, 1 win, 0 seconds, and 3 thirds for USD 15,900 (from 'equibase.com' - aAs the race results have not been located it is possible these figures are not accurate.)                                  
At his first start in the USA (12 Nov 1956) he finished third in the Washington D.C. International for which he won USD 10,000.                                   
One commentator has 74 starts.  Another has 72 starts but only finishing third once in the USA.                                 
Some Australian newspaper reports have used the spelling 'Prince Courtauld' after the name change.  I have used the Australian Turf Register spelling.                                 
A filly of the same name raced at the 1953 VRC spring carnival.  He ran under his new name from February 1954.                                 
Both PoisonPen7 (this site) and Dennis Huxley (Miller's Guide site) have only 39 Austraian starts listed omitting all those under the original name of Courtald.

So the Sires was worth more than the Doncaster.

There was an earlier article on that site that had both winners certain to forego 3,500 pounds in prize money, so I thought they were the same.

On the article, I remember reading about a Victorian committeeman who took it as a personal slight that one of his horses returned a positive and wouldn't race again in Sydney, in the early days of swabbing. Is that right, and would that be Cromis's owner, E.A. Underwood?

Of course, I may have read this on a none too reputable site (like this one!!!).

So the Sires was worth more than the Doncaster.

Only because of sweepstakes I  reckon.  Both races were advertised as being of 5,000 with 3500 to the winner plus sweepstakes.  I don't understand it though because there were more starters in the Doncaster than the Sires but maybe the very early (and very many)  nominations for the Sires has something to do with it.




Nikethamide is 'nicotinic acid diethylamide' marketed as Coramine and according to Lord Wiki

"Theodor Morell, Adolf Hitler's personal physician, would inject the German ruler with Coramine when Hitler was unduly sedated with barbiturates. In addition, Morell would use Coramine as part of an all-purpose "tonic" for Hitler"

Its a wonder the horse didn't try to invade Poland.

That appears to be right.  The whole affair seems to be a critical moment in the establishment of swabbing in Australian racing.  The AJC lead the way in this and other states were tardy in coming on board.  Underwood seems to be in the thick of it and it does seem that he is dirty on losing the race with Cromis.

He wasn't the only one though -  George Ryder, Norman Robinson and Kenneth Luke were among the owners who had horses disqualified over doping in the early fifties.  Trainer Mick Denham was disqualified for life, Tommy Smith and Maurice McCarten sailed very close to the edge, and they all had one thing in common :  Miss Jean Kimble.



Miss Kimble, a graduate of the University of Sydney, was the first analyst employed by the AJC laboratory and she pioneered drug testing and swabbing in Australia.  She was challenged by all sorts of powerful racing men and summoned to the courts but at all times retained her reputation as an expert analyst -  until she was quietly moved sideways by the AJC in the wake of the Tarien saga.

Smith had friends in high places.

Prince Morvi (AUS) 1950                                  
Norh American racing record unconfirmed.                                 
45 starts, 14 wins (6 x Group 1 all in Australia), 10 seconds and 3 thirds.  Win % 31.1, Place % 60.0.                                  
In Australia: 23 starts, 9 wins, 6 seconds, and 1 third (details below)                                 
In USA and Canada: 22 starts, 5 wins, 4 seconds, and 2 thirds for USD 76,950. (As the race results have not been located it is possible these figures are not accurate.)                                  
Perhaps his best effort in North America was second in the 1956 Canadian International Stakes (later Grade 1) run in course record time.  This race has also been won by Secretariat and Dahlia and other internationally notable horses.                                 
Rated equal 26 (of 75) on 114 lbs (52kg) in the 4YO C&G American Free Handicap of 1956 behind Swaps on 132 lbs (60kg). Bottom weight was 105 lbs (47.5kg).

There was quite a traffic in Australian horses in the USA in the post war years, wasn't there.  It reminds me of the earlier period at the turn of the century when there was quite a traffic of Australian racing horses to the UK.

That is interesting because growing up in the 1970's there was no action internationally for the young Australian racing fan at all, apart from the leaper, Crisp, until the first Australian horses started to try their luck in the Japan Cup.

Prince Morvi is something of a forgotten horse.  His record is very good.  He is the 26th (of 33) winner of the AJC/VRC Derby double and very consistent at the highest level in open company. 

His sire Gaekwar's Pride also produced the Derby winner Mantello Towers, the flying Nagpuni (Doomben 10,000 and twice winner of The Shorts) who was also exported to the USA, and Gilhooley who was bred in Australia but foaled in the US where she had 105 starts for 10 wins and proved a very productive broodmare whose best daughter was the multiple stakes winner Hooley Ruler.

Seems that of the better performed horses to go to the US in the 1950's and 60's most were New Zealand bred.

Maybe I should amend that to Australasian bred.

Many were NZ bred but  Bernborough, Shannon, Royal Gem, Sailors Guide, Tobin Bronze, Prince Morvi, etc. were Australian bred.  I am compelled to point this out owing to the date.

But I take your point.  Even on a table of the Australian Hall of Fame horses the incidence of (NZ)  begins to concetrate in the post war years.  Carbine, Phar Lap and High Caste were the only NZ bred Australian Hall of Fame horses before the war but their are 10 (of 22) that carry the NZ designation bred from 1946 to 2000.



On another matter entirely I am compiling a table of the leading stakeswinners in Australasia.  The sequence I have at present is

THE BARB
CHESTER
TRIDENT
ABERCORN*
CARBINE
EURYTHMIC
GLOAMING
AMOUNIS
PHAR LAP
SHANNON**
HYDROGEN

* - Yet to be confirmed but I believe Abercorn was briefly the leading stakeswinner on his retirement in November 1889 with 12,371.
Carbine eclipses that figure in the following 12 months.
** - Shannon's US earning complicate matters.  He becomes the leading stakes winner of an Australasian horse but not the leading stakes winner in Australasia.  Hydrogen eclipses Phar Lap's Australasian earnings but not Shannon's career earnings.

As far the Australasian record is concerned Rising Fast eclipses Hydrogen's prizemoney but if my figures are correct Redcraze eclipses Rising Fast and his earnings are eventually passed by Tulloch when he returns to racing.  And that record stands until Gunsynd.  So the list would proceed

RISING FAST
REDCRAZE
TULLOCH
GUNSYND
TARAS BULBA


Would you agree ?

Thanks re Recraze.  Miller's Guide overlooks Redcraze's first start as a 4YO - unpl in the ThamJC Farewell Hack Hcp (per Pring).  Also misses his 1956 Caulfield Stakes win as 6YO.
Might be asking a bit but hope you can help me out with Daryl's Joy 1968-69 NZ season.  Only have Pring to rely on.

Wiggle too - I suppose it is the NZ horses that crop up among the horses I am looking at that raced the US in the 50s etc.

Re stakewinners - some guesswork involved in calculating the timing of Equibase.com US earnings when don't have complete racing record eg for Daryl's Joy (and sorting out which of the Equibase USD figures relate to non-US racing where raced in both hemispheres in same calendar year). I have used Reserve Bank of Australia monthly exchange rates where available for USD and NZD earnings otherwise some more guesswork involved.  Its unfortunate the RBA don't publish pre Euro details for converting FF or DM to AUD eg for Strawberry Road. See next post for summary.

re your question re record stake winners - my best guess for Australas

Horse   Ranking   Overall AUD won
      
CARBINE (NZ) 1885   Undisputed Number 1 at the time   AUD 59,252.00
Stake winnings record set 4 Apr 1891.      
Held Australasian stakewinnings record of AUD 59,252 from 4 Apr 1891 until 25 Feb 1922 when passed by Eurythmic.      
      
POSEIDON (AUS) 1903      AUD 39,892.00
      
TRAFALGAR (AUS) 1905   Passed Poseidon  to move to second   AUD 44,222.00
      
DESERT GOLD (NZ) 1912      AUD 46,478.00
      
CETIGNE (AUS) 1912    Passed Trafalgar to move to second   AUD 54,412.00
      
Poitrel (AUS) 1914      AUD 53,840.00
      
EURYTHMIC (AUS) 1916   Passed Carbine to move to first   AUD 73,982.00
Stakewinnings record set 8 Mar 1923      
25 Feb 1922 passed Carbine's Australasian stakewinnings record of AUD 59,252 when he won the Caulfield Futurity Stakes.      
Held Australasian stakewinnings record of AUD 73,782 from 8 Mar 1923 until9 May 1925 when passed by Gloaming.      
Finished racing 2 years before Gloaming who won 43,100.  Eurythmic's career summary in 1923 Australasian Turf Register at p756-757 excludes 100 to breeders for win in WA Sires' Produce.      
      
Gloaming (AUS) 1915   Passed Eurythmic to move to first   AUD 86,200.00
Stakewinnings record set 9 May 1925.      
      
David (AUS) 1917       AUD 62,820.00
      
The Hawk (NZ) 1918      AUD 48,520.00
      
WHITTIER (AUS) 1919      AUD 53,192.00
      
Windbag (AUS) 1921      AUD 71,898.00
      
HEROIC (AUS) 1921   Passed Eurythmic to move to second   AUD 76,124.00
      
Spearfelt (AUS) 1921      AUD 56,346.00
      
AMOUNIS (AUS) 1922   Passed Gloaming to move to first   AUD 96,596.00
Stakewinnings record set 1 Nov 1930 when ran 3rd in the Melbourne (later Mackinnon) Stakes. The race was won by Par Lap whose earnings after that win I have estimated at AUD 70,648.  Allowing for error Amounis was well in front of Phar lap at 1 Nov 1930 (Amounis had 2 more starts without earning any more, 6/11/1930 and 27/08/1932).      
      
PHAR LAP (NZ) 1926   Passed Amounis to move to first   AUD 147,130.00
I have converted Phar Laps USD 50,500 (not note USD 50,050) winnings in Mexico to AUD 34,280.      
      
      
Shannon (AUS) 1941 ('Shannon II' in USA)   Passed Phar Lap to move to first   AUD 169,476.89
Stakewinnings record set 25 Nov 1948 when won the San Francisco Hcp at Tanforan racecourse San Francisco, CA, USA.  First prize was USD 16,800 and my AUD estimate of his winnings for that race is AUD 10,421.84.        
      
Hydrogen (AUS) 1948      AUD 118,858.00
Hydrogen surpassed Phar Lap's Australian stakewinnings when he won the 1953 VRC CB Fisher Plate.  Hydrogen finished racing with stakewinnings of 59,429.  When North American earnings are included in total stakewinnings Shannon was still the leading Australasian stakewinner to that time followed by Phar Lap.        
      
Rising Fast (NZ) 1949      AUD 126,020.00
Rising Fast won NZ4,055 before crossng the Tasman.  His Australian stakewinnings passed that of Hydrogen when he won the 1956 Memsie Stakes. His total Australasian earnings were A63,010.  His total Australasian earnings made him the third highest Australasian stakewinner to that time behind Shannon and Phar Lap.        
      
Prince Morvi (AUS) 1950      AUD 137,226.00
In USA and Canada: 22 starts, 5 wins, 4 seconds, and 2 thirds for USD 76,950.       
      
Sailor's Guide (AUS) 1952   Passed Shannon to move to first place   AUD 236,182.64
11 Nov 1958 passed Shannon's AUD 169,476 Australasian earnings record when won the Washington DC International at Laurel, Maryland, USA.      
      
Tulloch (NZ) 1953      AUD 220,191.00
Moved to second place withstakewinnings of 110,095.50 or AUD 220,191 to pass Shannon 84,738.44 (decimalised) or AUD 169,476.89.      
      
SKY HIGH (AUS) 1957      AUD 154,510.00
Wikipedia page says - When retired to stud he was Australia's second highest stakes-winner behind Tulloch.      
      
DARYL'S JOY (NZ) 1966   Passed Sailor's Guide to move to first place   AUD 267,704.25
NZ winnings of NZD 21,810 I have converted to AUD 21,853.71 and US winnings of USD 192,775 I have converted to AUD 172,120.54.

Strawberry Road ran 2nd (not 3rd as you have it) in the Breeders Cup turf to the mighty English filly Pebbles. 
Only a great ride on the winner saw him beaten.

That's fantastic Tim.

I have never seen a list of the holders of the prizemoney record let alone one as comprehensive as that.  Superb research.
You have saved me hours of work  and a headache.

My draft only went as far as Taras Bulba because I knew how complicated the list becomes in the period from 1974 to 2000 but you have nailed it.

I have two lists now.  One of the the prizemoney record for Australasian horses and another for record prizemoney won in Australasia. 

With regards to the second list I still believe Redcraze (with $143,282 (Pring)) must hold the title between Rising Fast and Tulloch.


On another note entirely I was corresponding with Dennis Huxley of the Miller's Guide recently submitting some corrections to his archive (which he welcomes) and I asked him if he was interested in growing the archive and he was very keen.   I am interested to know how you would feel about migrating some of this data to the Miller's Guide site.

As usual no guarantees the stuff on Australasian stake winners is right - just my best guess.  Excel is a wonderful invention but not fool proof - needs a good proof reader to pick up my mistakes. Will review in the light of your comment.

I only started all this so that the old warriors wouldn't be forgotten and I assume the same for you so not fussed if Miller's Guide borrows the stuff - I use the Miller's Guide as a resource - disappointed I chucked out some Miller's Guides from several decades ago before I started puttting this stuff together.  Something has to give when you move house.

Sailor's Guide (AUS) 1952      
      
Australia 58 starts:  18-13-8-19   66,044.00   AUD 132,088.00
USA / Canada 12 starts:  5-4-0-3     USD 116,586.00   AUD 104,094.64
Total 70 starts:  23-17-8-22      AUD 236,182.64
His North American record is taken from Equibase.com and I have not been able to verify each North American start.      
I have converted his USD winnings at the rate of USD 1.12 to AUD 1.00 being the approximate exchange rate based on Australian media reports at the time he raced in the USA.      
While Sailor's Guide only won 4 Group 1 races being      
1955 VRC Victoria Derby      
1956 AJC Sydney Cup      
1957 VRC L.K.S Mackinnon Stakes      
1958 Washington D.C. International      
he is notable for retiring as Australasia's greatest stake winner.      
On 11 Nov 1958 Sailor's Guide passed Shannon's AUD 169,476 Australasian earnings record when won the Washington DC International at Laurel, Maryland, USA at his first start in the USA to increase his stakewinnings by AUD 62,500 to AUD 194,588.      
A media report in April 1961 suggested that Tommy Smith was keen to win the 1961 Pullman Stakes with Tulloch because first prize would take Tulloch's earnings past that of Sailor's Guide.  It seems this report was based on the inclusion of Sailor's Guide's winnings from the Washington DC International only.  However Sailor's Guide had won a further AUD 41,495 in North America by the time Tulloch ran in and won the Pullman Stakes.  Sailor's Guide retired in 1960.       
PoisonPen7 has listed his Australian racing record on this site and also mentioned several USA starts.

Sailor's Guide won the 1958 Washington International by disqualification.  He finished second as they went past the post.  
He was bumped by the winner Tudor Era.  Didn't look much in it to me and the winner won by 3 1/2 lengths!
