Joshua Reynolds finished 2nd beaten half a length.
Much better run, just needs ground.
Find him a 4000m race somewhere - don’t know if we have any though.

Think the jockey missed the boat. He should have taken off at about the 600m mark. I doubt the winner catches him if he does.

My namesake had the biggest wraps on him of any horse ever excluding Oscar Schindler when it came out for the Melbourne cup.

A poor last jump and not using the horses natural stamina cost Joshua Reynolds.

Joshua Reynolds sold at auction for $9,050 to Fernwood Park Pty Ltd (Eric Musgrove). Given the promise he was showing with David Hayes as a hurdler over the winter, that seems like a good buy.

He was originally purchased from the UK for $290,000 😮

How's this for missing out on a very cheap legend. In 1976 my father and I decided to go to the Adelaide yearling sales, at Wayville then, and buy a horse. We really couldn't afford much but there we sat with our catalogue amongst the much wealthier trying to pick one we could afford, we preferred a filly and looked at a couple, no let that one go. Next in the ring was this big ugly box headed chestnut colt, I quite liked him though but my father fessed up that he'd forgotten the cheque book. That's how you paid 45 years ago. We reluctantly watched as he sold for about $3600. It was Manikato, bred at Noonamah stud just 5 km up the road by Reg Concannon who was friends with my grandfather. I'm glad he ended up being trained by Bob Hoystead after Bon died, no other trainer would have had the patience to get the best out of the mighty Man. I loved him and followed him through his whole career, every clipping in the papers,never missed a race. Sadly he died way too soon in Feb 1984, on my birthday. He was an absolute legend.
And we could have had him. Oh well, that's racing.
