One of my favourite Melbourne Cup winners the mighty Queenslander Rustic Venture. It was the first cup I ever drank out of, celebrating well into the night with my brother. I got firmly into the camp when Peter Denaro stayed for about five weeks at my good friend the late John Weston’s place in Noble Park. John’s wife Margaret looked after my eldest daughter Emma. I was there every day at drop off and pick up when my wife worked in the city. Good trainer Peter and a great bloke, we all got on like a house on fire.
