1973 Melbourne Cup winner New Mariner.

John Stephens – While a truely great chaser… won the Melbourne Cup in the slowest time ever? 31.49 sec from memory after huge stack at the infamous ‘old’ Sandown first turn.

Howard Gray – Trained New Mariner’s brother Showman who we bought off Bill Lecky after he’d won a couple of Olympic Park qually’s but got beat in the finals. Went on to be one of SA’s best sprinters winning numerous Invitation races at Angle Park. Wonderful broodie Cursorial.
