Lindsay, Lionel Arthur, Sir, 1874-1961 :[Cartoon on horse-racing] New Zealand. [The Bulletin? Between 1908 and 1911].
Reference Number: H-652-001
Shows a bookmaker sailing for New Zealand, laden with money, a horse at his side, waving to a disconsolate Australian man with empty pockets. The cartoon shows the way one section of the media saw New Zealand's racing raid on Australia early this century. Exhibition caption reads ...New Zealand was acquiring a reputation for the breeding of race horses and their fleetness of foot. At regular intervals, New Zealand horses have continued to win major Australian races - the Melbourne and Caulfield Cups and W. S. Cox Plate among others. The first New Zealand-bred Melbourne Cup winner was Martini Henri in 1883. Australian owners and trainers are routinely prominent buyers at New Zealand yearling sales.
