Those rug colours were 2 blue and 4 check in 1949 as per this Racebook from Napier Park 16th May.
Love the claim on front of the Napier Park Race book from 1954 POSITIVELY NO POSTPONEMENT. Some wonderful names among the leading trainers and a big week to follow with the Grand National Steeple. Can you imagine the welfare outcry they would be more terrified than the Victorian Government currently over Covid-19. I like the club’s simple slogan “Where all the best dogs go.”
