1981 Bi-Annual Classic at Harold Park.

1981 Bi-Annual Classic at Harold Park. GRV Deputy Chair Greg Miller looks like the trainer of King Castella. Race won by Merry Tempest. Greg had two in the race Picture This finished fourth.

Des Dooley – Neil, Did Merry Tempest finish up in Victoria with Bob and Marina Tesso?
Andrew Paraskevas– Des Dooley That’s the story Dad tells me 👍
Des Dooley– Andrew, I am confident that big Bob Tesso finished up with the dog. Greyhound Data has 3 progeny listed, all out of Victorian bitches.
Peter Dawson– Pat and Jimmy Ward terrific money trainers, good blokes
Jeff Collerson– Merry Tempest was trained by Pat Ward, a terrific trainer from Lisarow on the central coast. His dogs were nearly always brilliant beginners like Hallowed who won the Tweed Heads Galaxy in 1984, Harold Park flyer Regal Baron, the enigatic Metal Springs and 1988 Richmond Derby winner Maggiore
Chris McKay– Mine of information Mr Collerson – we like it!
