No I'm not going anywhere:classic_rolleyes:

There is a horse racing at Counties on Wed called that

Can anyone recall a horse of the same name that used to race in the 70's.  A very good handicapper, used to race against the likes of Dashing Lu and Riverview

I thought Bill Winder too.

Funny it doesn't seem to be in the LoveRacing database but I certainly remember the horse.

Skint Dip. Now there's a horse I loved. Went to Aussie unbeaten and I think he ran down the track in a Caulfield Cup.

Aussie commentator was calling him Skeent Deep.

ngakonui grass,

Skint Dip finished fourth to Silver Knight, Igloo and Tails in the 1971 Melbourne Cup, I believe.

All the best.

ngakonui grass,

I think that the horse that you may be thinking of is "Not Again". I believe that the prominent owner of this horse previously raced a top-class galloper called "Terrific", who had a nightmare campaign in Australia and so, in the hope of avoiding a repeat, named his next horse as such. "Not Again" was a top-class racehorse in his own right.

Please believe me, there is no need to apologise. We all make the odd mistake when recalling the long ago, and your reference to great horses of the past delights me and allows me to indulge myself in a brief reverie.

Cheers.

Just been reading Noel Riordans obiturary in the Te Awamutu Courier .

Strike Again was the horse  and W.C Winder trained it.Owner wanted a picture of his horse going past the post first and they got it.

Not Again and Terrific both owned by Dr McGregor Grant and trained by Merv Ritchie.

Terrific failed in Aus and when Not Again went over headlineread" Oh no not again" given that they werewell hyped.

I have proved the truth of my own comment. Strike Again was the name of a horse trained by a Miss A Vissier?, Tauranga, that won first-up from a spell after injury, I believe, in the first part of the seventies. The horse was by Fair's Fair. For some reason, that piece of seemingly irrelevant information has remained in my mind. I do hope that my memory is accurate.

Golden Sam and Magnifique (second the year before to Piping Lane). Swell Time won the Caulfield Cup. Some great memories surround those horses. Everybody in Palmerston North at that time knew about Glengowan and the (then) apprentice Noel Harris.
