Magnificent Seven Canberra - A Day To Remember
Australia Day 1997 was an historic occasion in the annals of ACT Racing. John Morrisey, Canberra’s leading trainer, equaled an Australian record when he trained the first seven winners on the ACT Racing Club’s nine race program at Canberra Racecourse.
John Morrisey’s training feat equaled a record of seven winners on a program established by Colin Hayes at Victoria Park, Adelaide, on 23 January 1982.
John Morrisey came close to training the program when his charges in the final two events, Preferred Date in Race 8 and Annita in Race 9, each finished second.
Excitement built race by race as the Morrisey winners kept rolling in – not only in Canberra but at other race tracks and sky channel venues throughout Australia.
For all those present, it was a memorable occasion to witness such an outstanding achievement by the accomplished horseman.
Winners: Loose Lady, Semi Ah Moo, White Opera, La Soprano, Kulog, Benglide and Skimaway.
