    nice to see you pop up again piston_broke. what you do not know about perth racing in years gone by is not worth writing home about. you certainly must have listened to and drove your Dad mad...and picked up a lot along the way.

    i heard a bit from my dad, but nothing like you.
    we are going up to kal. on june 1st mainly to catch up with the Fernies....my cousin has some great big b&w photos.
    see if they can find Bobs cheque for the Perth Cup ;)

Do remember around some time Ross Price trained congressman that JJ Miller rode in kalg cup may have ran second thinking JJ had a fall earlier in the day and had a very sore shoulder in cup.Then next year Congressman ran 2nd in Caulfield Cup George Hanlon was Bob Peter's Melb trainer then

    He is now 2.5 million richer after selling Celebrity Queen to Coolmore.

    Wow wonder what Arcadia Queen would have fetched then?  Can only think Sandra put her foot down for that not to go ahead. Bob admitted he has plenty with those same blood lines and thought it made sense to sell...... But how could you?

    Meant to put a question mark there. It was meant as an aside following the business comment and not meant as a negative.
