1981 Scotch Tar..WOW,I haven't seen this run for 40 years.

I have always remembered him as a great trotter of his era,and his running against open class pacers.

In this race,what an impossible task Sir Castleton was set,amazing how close he got to Scotch Tar at finish!

Absolute freak this horse. Won two heats before the final and ran second to Rip Van Winkle . Thats a Trotter up against the likes of Paleface, Sporting Son, the afore mentioned etc. 

Was a bit of a tragedy he couldn't nail his Interdominion Win on his home state track Moonee Valley 1978 . Had won 24 straight before Healy drove a shocker and ran 3rd in the Final. good Luck to Derby Royale i spose. you still got to drive them to win , even the best ones.

Possibly slightly increased his legend status though I guess? , with the Unlucky Loss amongst all the great Performances.
