STEWART ANDERSON MEMORIAL
hey guys... this race is a memorial maiden at cootamundra for my rather charismatic uncle stewy who died a few years ago. Stewy was a real character and was also quite adept at upsetting my grandma. Very dry and witty bloke who never took a backward step in life. He is much remembered and his legacy as a bush trainer and a man continues through this race on coota cup day. Stewy used to break in horses for TJ and is best remembered for schooling MAHOGANY... he reckons she was a horse that once she learnt to walk she learnt to race. Jumped from the barriers clean as a whistle and first time she went around his property she stuck her nose out at the post. He is also remembered for the talented mare SVELDT.. when all the journos got him at the mounting yard after she won and asked him how he managed to bring her from the picnics to the city and get her to win.. he replied "she is the best rabbit chaser he has ever had, the second she saw a bunnie she would hightail after it like a greyhound"
Thoughts go out today to his fantastic wife Cherie, sons Robby, mickey and daughter Dawny. Trish and Robbie anderson still train horses in the riverina and unfortunately dont have a horse in this one but we are lining up for THE OKKA... best typifies stewy in so many ways. Tricia and robbie do have a horse in R3 called Fairy Belle and R4 La Vedette. Whoever tips the winner of the stewart anderson memorial maiden on this thread first i will transfer $45 over to your PP account (minus PPs cut of course).
i will go first... THE OKKA
