The Winning Post, in conjunction with TVN, have started a competition to name the 50 greatest racehorses in Australia from the last 50 years. The past 50 years have been broken down into 3 eras – 1960s/70s, 1980s/90s and 2000s.
This week’s Winning Post focusses on the era from 1962-1979 and they have assigned Bruce Clark, Shane Templeton, Michael Sharkie, Greg Carpenter aand Adrian Dunn with the task of selecting their top 5 horses from each era. There is a comprehensive 4 page liftout identifying 17 horses from which to choose the best 5 of this era. Those named, in alphabetical order, are:
We have plenty of knowledgeable (and opinionated) Almanackers and I would be interested in getting their thoughts on the top 5 in order for this era this week. Feel free to nominate some from outside of the list provided. I was thinking that such horses as Tulloch, Todman and Lord might have fallen into the era but they were just before. So come on, give us your best!
