Only 4 weeks away tomorrow, so lets have a few trivia questions

1.  What was significant in NZ about the running of the 1971 MC

2.  What was George Cobbs link to the MC

3.  What event affected the first MC

4.  What stud has bred 7 MC winners and name them

5.  How many NZ breds have won the MC.  If you can't name the last, you lose the point

6.  Which MC winner is this, and name 2 things that were significant about the winner.  Second pic is the horse winning

This cutie is Catalogue winner of the 1938 MC and an interesting thing about the horse is that it was in fact trained by Mrs McDonald on the left, but she was not allowed to hold a trainer's licence so the horse was trained under her husband's name...

2 points, still another point up for grabs

She trained in Palmerston North, Granny McDonald, real first name Hedwick!
