Here’s that crack field in the 71 Melbourne Cup. In finishing order Gerard The Gent, Shapely Escourt, Lizrene, Amethyst Queen, Jecadus, Mystic Moon, Kumiss and Noelian. It was a great night I remember backing the Gent and Lizrene the place.
Jeff Collerson – Wow Amethyst Queen, one of the fastest beginners I’ve seen. She was trained by Lauris Kentwell, whose father Neville Ballinger trained Amerigo Lady, winner of the first ever National Distance Championship.
