It was a cool afternoon at Morphettville, and the field for the 1991 Goodwood Handicap was locked and loaded at the 1200. Many expecting to see local favourite, 7 yo gelding Beau George, the winner of the previous year’s Goodwood Handicap, bring home the goods for the second consecutive year.
But as they straightened 6 yo gelding, Crush (NZL) broke the line out wide and headed for home….
It was the New Zealand sprinters first and only win, before being retired shortly after.
Beau George’s last race came the following year, in the Goodwood Handicap, where the champion gelding finished 11th.
It’s carnival time. For the next 6 weeks, Morphettville hosts the best of the best.
