Finally, will kick this off.  Computer problems, such as a CPU over heating and struggling along with Windows XP, finally came to a head, and have upgraded to a new computer!!

I was going to make this a comp, whereby you PM the answers to me, but I think everyone enjoys the interplay, so it will be a free for all.  First to get the correct answer scores the points, person with the most points wins.  The early birds may get some of the easier 1 pointers, but plenty of hard questions and good point scorers

Will run it for 2 weeks, with a $100 bet as the prize.

Any unanswered questions, will open up with a few clues

That wonderful horse, that was bought for $1500, and went on to become a champion.  Probably my fave horse of all time

Anyone who has followed thoroughbreds for a while, will understand why Veandercross stands for everything that is good in NZ racing, and why so many have kept the dream going

QR3 1966 Epsom Derby (Hermes ridden by Greville Starkey). St Puckle the other runner who stood at stud in NZ.  Hermes sired a Melbourne Cup winner (Van der Hum) and two winners of NZ Oaks (Athenaia and Eastern Time)
