Appin ready to race 70’s

Racing at Wyong in 1972.

Rob White – I assumed you raced greys at Appin?
Peter Dawson– Was at first race meeting there
Jeff Collerson– Peter Dawson I was there too Pete. That’s Sid Shackleton in the photo watering the track. Sid owned Chief Holly who won a National Derby when trained by Les Brien in 1977
Peter Dawson– Yes Sid was the original curator before the Oldfields … or was there someone inbetween
Jeff Collerson– Appin opening day was Oct 6, 1975, I still have a souvenir handkerchief the GBOTA handed out on the day
