    p.s. I don't mind at all if my fellow competitors go Melody Belle as well. I'm just in this and all comps in fact for the personal challenge and fun, rather than any reward. In this comp the personal challenge is of course to be sailing as close to the edge as you can, without tipping over !  . I've managed it well so far ... but tomorrow is another day. Prove me wrong, Melody.

    Good morning, folks.
    I'm going with :-
    Flemington  M12
    Race 5
    Horse 2
    MELODY BELLE
    Magnificent Kiwi mare 'top-of-the-tree' in NZ .... but over in Australia it'll have to be another step up, and from gate 13 she will need to be clearly better than them. She may be better than them, but not the significantly better that she will need to be. 
    Thank you very much for this comp Toblerone and poundforpound. Different from the competitions I usually enter, and a whole heap of fun.
    Good luck to my fellow last men standing,  Kloppite and Talk.
    Cheers.

    That's brilliant ! Thank you very much gubellini, blue, and rdytdy. Much appreciated. 
    I thought he must have been a pretty handy horse, or I can't imagine I would have had the interest in him that I did at the time. 9 wins from 40 starts was pretty useful for sure.
    This makes great reading, gubellini. Cheers.

    Two horses I remember with fondness were Jay Ribbon and Glamis Lad, both were well performed southern horses. They both went to Trentham and won the Parliamentary and the White handicap resulting in a huge double giving me one of the best collects in my life
  14. Thanks
    Koriokaramea reacted to gubellini in Anyone remember 'Styx' ?   
    Styx was a chestnut colt bred in 1963 by his owner Eric Davies by Syntax out of the Sajakeda mare Motion who was bred by Ngaruwahia trainer Lloyd Burdett. He raced 40 times for 9 wins. He was trained by George Smith initially at Takanini and then at Te Rapa. He won at his third start at the Paeroa meeting held at Pukekohe on the 18/12/65. At three he won the 1967 Kings Plate. His biggest win was the 1967 Foxbridge Plate beating a top class field ridden by Ron Taylor. Second was Fairfleet ridden by John Riordan and third Tatua and John Grylls with Dee Dee and Gary Edge fourth. Norm Holland won six on him and Brian Andrews, Ron Taylor and Colin Underhill one each.
  15. Thanks

    I can recall Styx. 
    Gubellini has a set of NZ Turf Registers with all the race results and records of every horse so if he sees this he will be able to post the full details of Styx. Watch this space.

    Raced by te akau or Ngaruawahia farmer Eric Davies. Was also a Waikato committee man.I rode in shows with his kids. I believe his widow still shares ownership in a TA syndicate or two.

    Not surprising that so many continue to enter …. when a competition is extremely well-run with a variety of formats (individual, pairs, trios, teams of 6, etc), simple rules, an easy entry process,  prompt and lively accurate updates throughout the day, played in a good spirit and with no 'smart-arses' … then a competition is a 'winner' and people keep coming back for more. It is a competition that adds great value to a Saturday's racing enjoyment.

    The 5YO chestnut mare, The Party Girl, by Sebring out of Betterthanblushing, by Encosta de Lago, was more prepared to celebrate than the rest and just swamped them to get to that finishing line, Drachenfels, the son of Street Cry ran on well to pick up second and No Escape, the son of Shellscrape finished well to make up the Trifecta.  Thy Kingdom Come was battling out the finish half way down the straight but couldn't sustain the run and held on to make up the First 4 second up in a new campaign.
