Interesting Read - History of Thoroughbred Breeding in the Upper Hunter Valley


Recommended Posts

Interesting reading
"I had delusions of grandeur. I thought I could write a seminal tome about the evolution of the Thoroughbred Breeding Industry in the Upper Hunter Valley. Earlier I managed a very modest digest which I called the ‘History of Thoroughbred Breeding in the Upper Hunter Valley’. I believed I could ‘expand and enhance’ this book. When I delved deeper I discovered that much of the best ‘modern’ information was available only on the web? The rest hadn’t changed. I had the good fortune to meet the late Keith Binney at his pristine home in Cremorne. He helped me immeasurably and even presented me with 20 copies of his pivotal research composition ‘Horsemen of the First Frontier’ to give to others. He said; “If TROVE had been available he could have achieved the task in a fraction of the time”.
