    I received one as a present. A framed pic which displays the "Legends Of The Turf" over the last 30yrs:

     Octagonal: check: Saintly: check; Sunline:(debatable, but check); Northerly: check etc etc...curiously Might And Power has been excluded but Fields Of Omagh made the cut :-? :-O

    Oh I still have the plastic visor they were handing out for free for the 2005 BMW, billed as a match race between Maybe Diva & Grand Armee. I got the MD one and there were plenty. I went back to grab the GA one and they were all gone. Who would have thought that now? :-??

    framed print of Black Caviar, it has separate photos round the border of each win, signed be Peter Moody and Luke Nolen... I wouldn't mind and shouldn't be too hard getting Jarrad Noske to scribble on the first two photos that have him winning on her B-)

    @hash If you look closely at the UK win you can see Nolen thinking: "Oh ****, that was close!"  ;))

    Are you going to give us the story about how you procured those acquisitions?

    still gives me shivers thinking of that win and how close it was... imagine if it went the other way and he got her beaten!! the uproar from punters, the whole of her followers from Oz, connections of the horse and all the rest.... and that unbeaten streak gone! it seriously would have been the biggest disaster in sporting history in our lifetime

    in the late seventies when I was about 10-13 years old I used to work in the jockeys room they had a race called the H G Bolton international if I remember correctly the best jockeys from all over the world were invited in the racebook they had a picture of them and a little story on each of them I got everone of their signatures still have the racebook at home also helped ROY HIGGENS with his gear in those days us valets would walk down to were they weigh in and get there saddle I think it was the derby or a lead up race the professor won on stormy rex  Jimmy Hollands went to get a photo of Roy Roy put his arm over my shoulder and said not without my little mate the next Saturday after packing his bag  he hands me a framed copy of it with the signature to my mate best luck good wishes roy Higgins still has pride of place on my wall even though I am now 50

    Moody's reactiojn after the race when what looked like an official-went to shake his hand but was brushed-was a classic. He was livid. Oh to be a fly on the wall when Luke Nolen gave his explanation behind closed doors.

    no probs slip, not much of a story. I used to work at PR. And they were throwing them out (the whole set). However, as a Takeover Target fan I asked my superior if I could keep the 1 and 2 numbers and they said yes. This is going back a number of years ago now.

    Moody told the story at a carbine lunch a few years back. A good yarn - bit too long to go through here ( cue bookielover =)) ).

    My wife's mum has a not 100% on the date but 18** whip inscribed brass handle with Perth cup and other bits . Looked up up years ago couldn't find anything on the details at the time her grandfather was a jumps jockey and theirs a Perth in the UK so couldn't clarify if was here or not ,when her mum passed was a what looked like a fob watch that was a furlong timer inscribed with I can't remember the race , horse jockey of another big race and time with my name attached to it , one of the sister in laws ended up with her mits on that one and when my mother in law asked about it , it was as if it never existed and claimed she didn't know any thing about it X(
