Kel Greenough – Thanks Neil was a pleasure to have her for a while and driving to Maitland in an old bomb of a car . Also remember she made the herald sun after an offer for 50k was refused after she broke the record at Olympic Park 29.56. David Croswell then got her back home to Tasmania and she was a star. Interesting her dam was a sister to General Jeff and a daughter of the brilliant Odious. David and I still talk regularly and he still trains plenty of winners

Neil Brown -Couldn’t help myself putting the photo of Jackie up. Lovely bloke David got to know him a bit later on. Wow General Jeff’s sister no wonder she threw a flying machine.
