Racehorse trainer Tommy Woodcock with his champion racehorse Reckless on the night before running second to Gold and Black in the Melbourne Cup of 1977. Reckless had won the Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane cups and the 73-year-old trainer liked the stallion’s chances in the Cup. Horse and trainer died within months of each other in 1985. Tommy Woodcock was strapper to the mighty Phar Lap in 1930 when the great horse won the Melbourne Cup, and Phar Lap died in his arms while overseas in 1932.
