    Hi Paul
    The man in the hat with the ever present roll your own in the corner of his mouth is Korong Vale's own Jack Hargreaves.

    Trainer driver of Coneeda, Faye Maree, Alverly, Val Curl, Dashing McTavish and the mighty Miracle Mile (See pic below) , Bendigo Cup winner and USA winner, Adaptor.

    Jack was also a great supporter (and critic) of the now extinct Korong Vale Football Club.
    Training couldn't start until Jack had positioned his ute, complete with the necessary refreshments close to the fence beside the footy clubrooms.
    He was from there able to pass on his wisdom and opinions to the coach (me) , before and during, and even after training.

    Jack was terribly injured in a race fall at Nyah, but after a long period in hospital and rehab in Melbourne taught himself to walk with the assistance of his horse walking machine, and communicate with the aid of his note-pad. He moved to Wedderburn and lived overlooking the track where he could "supervise others training " from his wheel chair..either sitting or standing.

    A long, long time ago
    Is this VIC's first 2yo race of the season?

    Too good and 100% correct Steve. I'm told it was the race before Maori's Idols began his 24 win unbeaten streak. Also told he should have won that day at Maryborough

    I knew you'd know Noel! The pic was taken at Horsham trots (wording under it says).
