an australian legend of the turf

Drongo - a racing legend 

Many think that Drongo was useless, but he was a high class racehorse. He may have retired a maiden, but he ran second in the VRC Derby and had a host of top performances without ever winning. He ran second in the VRC Derby after an interrupted run in the straight.

This is the finish of the Derby when he was beaten by around a half-length.  Below is a photo taken in running. He is in the dark colours running seventh
