    Paul Dyson and his partner Kirsten Melis, operate Painted Park in North Dandalup. He is very easy to find on either their facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/Paintedpark1/ or him personally on social media.

    I don't what the two other guys do these days.

    Here is an image of him that I display in my home gallery that I shot maybe three years ago.

    Saw Chad Davies when I went out for dinner about 6 months ago at the pub near Ascot racecourse that is called now International on the water, he still looks light enough to do trackwork etc, Willy Arnold not sure but may have had some personal issues a while ago and went "east" but I will stand corrected on that one

    Where Are These Guys? I thought the heading referred to 99.99% of previous WA Bookmakers and a multitude of on course race meeting attendees.

    hi guys yep thats right damo he was between a rock & a hard place for a while ,but decided that his knee wasnt going to allow him to compete @the top level required , so went & got tickets & upgraded his licence to enter the mining industry . and with the help of rob wells who is old rons son he,s now on a 2 & 1 training shift , so a big thanks to robbie for that, i think sometimes we on this side of the fence forget how difficult it is for these guys to transition from only knowing 1 line of work for 25yrs & then with a simple mishap there career is slam/dunked in a minute ,also thanks @FLANDERS , BUT all should be good from here on he,s still got his loverly partner in LUCY @ lindsays smiths , so some involvement still there, but once again thanks for your comments guys cheers  ;)

    Wes Hall the cricketers son. Rode a winner a Mt Barker had a few rides around the provincial and country tracks when the west Indies were over here in the 80s. Id say about 1984.

    Think his name was Sean

  • DesperadoDesperado    96 posts
    I think Sean was another of Wes Halls sons. Died in a car accident from memory.

    I'm pretty sure the jockeys name was Peter. Doesn't really matter just a bit of trivia.

    George Way. Still in Canada? Tipped me a winner once three months in advance (First Up) and yes admittedly it was one he was done for.
