Yes, agreed that, it is in desperate need of a search facility.  The books I referred to can be found on -

http://www.horsemansbookshop.com.au/shop.php?categ=10&dis=non
Great place to browse as they generally hold books that just can't be found elsewhere.

Thanks tontonan.

That site, The horsemansbookshop and Gallery has me bamboozled. They seem strange to me.

They are advertising a soft cover version of Horsetrader - Robert Sangster for $75.

I picked up a hard cover version for $3 in the Salvos - just checked and it still has the sticker on it   :lol:

I can't walk past a op shop or a white elephant stall without having a look.  It's much tougher these days because of eBay and the like - there are full time trawlers out there ready to snap up the treasure and resell it for a premium on line.

I saw bound copies of Racetrack 1970-72 selling for $1900 on line.  I have also seen boxes of racing magazines selling for change in op shops.  They are gone now but I scored a box full of unmarked Miller's Guides 1964-1982 at a church fete for $5.  Heaven knows what they would be worth to a collector these days.

To: wiley ole dog re LEFROY

Peter Pring tells me he had 47 starts for 13 wins 8 seconds and 7 thirds (if he didn't race after 1978/79)
He won 3 times as a 2YO - worst finish was 5th
Main wins as a 3YO - Rosehill Guineas (Spring), Tulloch Stakes, AJC Championship Stks, QTC Grand Prix Stks and QTC Derby. 
2 wins as 4YO - Turnbull Stks in the Spring and VRC Queen Elizabeth Stks in the Autumn.
That was the end of it.   
In his defence he won in both Melb and Sydney (Caul / Flem and Rosehill and Rand) and there are quite a few good ones who couldn't do that.  The quality of opposition was pretty good when he was about (Family of Man, So Called, Hyperno, Manikato, Dulcify, Lloyd Boy (beat him a 1/2 nk in the Caulfield Stakes - was 7/4F), Belmura Lad, Ming Dynasty).

Deserves a carrot but not the champagne.

Tontonan - a 'bare bones' report on Lochiel's career - may have errors.                                     
                                    
LOCHIEL (NZ) 1882 (UK time)                                    
Bay (or brown) horse                                    
Prince Charlie (GB) 1869 - Nelly Moore (GB) 1872, by Voltiguer (GB) 1847                                    
                                    
24 starts: 8 wins (4 x G1) 4 seconds, 4 thirds 8 unplaced  (win % 33.3 place % 66.7)                                     
                                    
Although the owner seemed to set him for staying events he was a good enough sprinter to run first and second at his only two attempts at the Newmarket Hcp (1207m.).                                      
                                    
I think the owner George Stead was more concerned about plotting how to get his horses in the big handicaps at a light weight and 'long' odds rather than 'racing'.  Seems he had the money, the quality horses and the patience to do so.  Observations anyone.                                    
                                    
Raced against Carbine seven times at the end of his career but only beat him home twice, under handicap conditions, althought to his credit he carried a little more than Carbine both times.                                      
                                    
Very interesting protest lodged after his win in the 1887 New Zealand Cup - see my note under the result.

Thank you timw,

I must say I am a little surprised.  Only knowing his Australian form in 1887 and 1889 I assumed his New Zealand record would have been much better than it was but that is mitigated to some extent by his northern foaling.

G.G.Stead sounds like a witty nom-de-course but it was in fact his real name and together with Henry Redwood he is 19th century New Zealand racing legend. He was a shrewd one, no doubt about that, and some of his stings in Australia were sensational. 



"George Gatenby Stead was 12 times leading owner in the 1890s and early 1900s, but this conveys only a part of the influence he wielded on New Zealand racing in the early days. He was treasurer of the Canterbury Jockey Club for more than 30 years and chairman from the turn of the century, at a time when the strength of New Zealand racing was very much based in Canterbury. Active in the formation of the Racing Conference, he was much involved in the formation of a uniform set of rules throughout the country, and oversaw the building of a railway line from the main line to Riccarton racecourse. At first a leviathan punter, he became an enthusiastic supporter of the totalisator and was played a leading role in moving New Zealand racing to an all-totalisator structure. With only two trainers – David Jones and Dick Mason – during a 30-year period, Stead raced many of the best gallopers of his era and won all the country’s feature races on numerous occasions. He also made some stunningly successful raids on Sydney racing. He was a fearless buyer of bloodstock, but also imported some significant stallions and broodmares to New Zealand."

~ summary from NZ racing hall of fame




He won 13 New Zealand Derbys, 16 CJC Champagne Stakes, 9 NZ Oaks, 9 Canterbury Gold Cups and 4 New Zealand Cups.

Among the horses he brought to Australia were Le Loup, Mata, Trenton, Cruciform, Isolt, Nightfall, Sun Gold and Noctuiform.

Cruciform took on and beat the mighty Wakeful in 1903, while in 1905 Stead's raid on the Randwick carnival is legendary.  He won 8 races with 4 horses in the course of a week including the AJC Derby quinella with Noctuiform and Sun God carving an incredible 4.7 seconds off the race record. 

Surprisingly, having laid waste to Randwick Stead and his exclusive trainer Dick Mason ignored the riches on offer in Melbourne and took his team home.

He died in 1908.

Can someone refresh my memory. I see Mighty K had 2 runs as a 4yo, losing both to Grey Sapphire. Did he break down?

Any records for Grey Sapphire. I think he won a William Reid and a Doomben 10K aside from those two wins over Mighty Kingdom?

From memory Mighty Kingdom was retired to stud.  I don't think there was an injury involved.  His sire Planet Kingdom, the last sire son of Star Kingdom, had broken a leg and despite some time in a flotation tank the could not be saved.  Mighty Kingdom was the obvious choice to replace him but he proved a disappointment as sire.

Planet Kingdom was a great loss as a sire as he was one of the few Star Kingdom sons that produced horses that held their class to 2400m .  His fourth dam was Raphis, the sister to Phar Lap.  In addition to Mighty Kingdom he sired Ming Dynasty, Gypsy Kingdom, Ideal Planet, Just Ideal, King of the Stars, Leica Planet, and Mr.Jazz.

I have updated Amounis' record to include earnings and trophies (if any) at the end of each race.  His career earnings were £48,297.50 (AUD 96,595.00) which is 10 shillings (£0.50) or AUD 1.00 less than the amount previously stated.

EMANCIPATION (AUS) 1979                                    
28 starts, 19 wins (6 x Group 1), 1 second and 0 thirds.  Win % 67.9, Place % 71.4.                                     
Career earnings of AUD 550,210                                      
Wikipedia and Miller's Guide (2014/2015) have career earnings of AUD 550,510.                                      
I have include race prizemoney (including trophies) at the end of each race record.                                     
According to "Australian Race Results" Emancipatiion earned ARR 18,500 out of total prize of AUD 29,900 when she won the 1983 Canterbury Stakes (prizemoney for second to fifth places being 6,000, 3,000, 1,500 and 900).                                      
Query whether there might have been a AUD 100 trophy for first in the Canterbury Stakes which was not shown taking first prize to AUD 18,600 and the total prizemoney to AUD 30,000 and if so this would take her career earnings to AUD 550,310.                                    
As for the remaining AUD 200 discrepancy I have no idea.                                    
Emancipation was named Australia's champion racehorse in 1984 (Wikipedia).                                    
Five of her six Group 1 wins were against all comers, she equalled the Warwick Farm metric mile course record in winning the then G2 Chipping Norton, and together with her winning strike rate of 67.9% makes her one of Australia's great mares.

EMANCIPATION
1979 grey mare
(Bletchingly - Ammo Girl)
Trained by Neville Begg
1984 Australian Champion Racehorse
Topped the ANZ Classifications as a 4YO with 61½kg in the Middle distance category
Leading 3YO on the ANZ Classifications with 59kg  (middle distance category) 

Under the old style Classifications the only mares to rate with Emancipation were Lets Elope (62kg 1992 Long) and Sunline who rated 62kg (2000) 63kg (2001) and 62kg (2002).
Personally I thought she was every bit as good as Sunline without the longevity.
Her Doncaster win as a filly under 54½kg in 1.35.9 stacks up well against Sunline's first Doncaster with 52kg in 1.36.4



BTW the Index has been updated

Absolute champion mare. Very popular - probably because she was grey   :biggrin:

Her clashes with Sir Dapper were legend.

Tontonan  - some other mares that made the 'history books' or are otherwise notable statistically (foaled up to 2006).

Some raced mainly or solely in NZ.  I have almost no information on Hilda and Lady Zetland.  Those in CAPS won at the Group 1 level 5 or more times.

That is a solid supplementary list.

The good news is that I only missed two mares from the index - Desert Gold (an oversight) and Cynisca.

My personal collection (to1968) also includes Sweet Nell, Valicare, Evening Peal and Wiggle but it doesn't take account of horses that haven't raced in Australia.  From 1969 my collection contains Tristarc, Denise's Joy and Bounding Away but I haven't added many more yet beyond the Horses of the Year (including Rose of Kingston , Research & Typhoon Tracy) . I still have a lot of decisions to make.

Personally, I am plagued by questions of 'where to draw the line' in delineating my collection and maintaining a degree of balance across the decades.  I tend to use vague and rubbery criteria regarding historical importance rather than hard and fast rules.

Some excellent newsreel of the 1956 Stradbroke (won by Knave) and the Brisbane Cup (won by Redcraze)

http://www.t3licensing.com/license/clip/48050247_8700.do

The audio doesn't work for me (but that often happens on my computer).

Redcraze we should all know but Knave is a forgotten horse - and a good one.  It was a toss of the coin as to whether he was the leading 2YO of his year or Kingster was.  He won the VRC Sires and the Champagne.  He fell from favour when he was beaten in the Guineas classics in Sydney after being early Derby favourite but returned to win the Stradbroke late in his 3YO season and the Epsom Handicap.  He was taken to the US as many Australasian horses were in the 1950's and won the Longfellow Handicap  at Monmouth Park (New Jersey) before a useful stud career.

Found myself staying around the corner from the New York City Public Library so I went inside to check their holdings  of the American Racing Manual.  I found a significant amount of material on Tobin Bronze's US career which I am now updating at page 25 of this thread and a little bit on Daryl's Joy and Strawberry Road which I will post in the near future. As the visit was unplanned my attention to detail could have been better.  There a still quite a few holes in my career records for these horses however I hope the new material may help some one else complete their records.  Many thanks to the New York City Public Library staff who helped me work out how to retrieve the books which are kept 'off site'.  Poison Pen's Australian record of Tobin Bronze appears at page 4 of this thread.

What a great site!!

Sound doesn't work for me either.

Chatham winning the 1934 Doncaster with 10 stone 4 lbs which I believe is the record.

Dark Marne beats Columnist by a short half head in the 1948 Sydney Cup. The 1947 Melbourne Cup winner Hiraji breaks his leg and they show him in what must have been his last tragic moments.
