Rivette – Remembered

Rivette will be remembered by a few, when the Victoria Racing Club will run a series in her honour, tomorrow at Flemington.

She won the Cups double, the Caulfield Cup and the Melbourne Cup 1939, when Australia came out of a depression and was plunged into World War 2.

Rivette was by Ronsard, who was by Son–in- Law, noted sire of stayers himself; he won 8 races from 2400 to 4200 metres, including the Goodwood Cup.

She was bred by Harry Bamber, a drover from Pakenham, he raced and trained her, she proved to be a goldmine for the battler, he hung the stock whip over the old shed door, it was never used again.

Rivette was out of Riv, as she was never returned to the stud book her produce was not accepted either on retirement, Rivette did have a colt foal in River Hero, he was a fairly handy sprinter.

Royal Ascot Aborted  

The trip to Royal Ascot has been aborted for Luck Favours, the Starspangledbanner filly that was due to fly out on Wednesday, to run in the Queen Anne Stakes.

Trainer Mark Young said, “it is disappointing but we will get her there her at some stage, but we are not sure when,” he added.

When she was checked a day or two ago, and had not cleaned out her feed bin from the previous evening, it was discovered she had a temperature.
