  1. I rode the winner here in this photo it was the first time I had ridden in a race for over 15yrs. I won this race before in 1991 on a mare called Warrondi it was run over 1750m back then & 1400m here on this occasion. It was a much bigger event back then as you could start your horses here & then start them a week later in Birdsville. Now under the rules of racing in SA if you start your horse at a amateur meeting it’s band from racing at a registered meeting for life & it was here at Innamincka that the course of this rule being applied as a horse raced & won the cup under a false name & yes there was money involved. The horses name here was They shall not pass. He won it very easy coming from last at the top of the strait carrying 78kg

    • Congrats on your win,especially after 15 years, and thanks for all the info of racing in SA, I had a great day there, I was working at the outstation of Durham Downs “Woomanooka” and we went over for the races. If you would like a print done of this special moment please email me at callie.c.photography@hotmail.com and I will get one printed for you.I thought a good name would be “eat my dust”
      cheers Callie

      • Thanks that would be great. I have a bunch of negitives from 1991 that a reporter from the advitizer of that cup win. A horse that was also in that race is now a famous stallion. He was a crack race horse on his way to Birdsville his name was King maker. He should have won it but you got it. The dust is a killer. Thanks
