Lockdown Day 15 – Snap Puzzle

It's a tough one today

Stephen Jupp and The Monk were found by many readers for the Day 14 puzzle and we are now intensifying the poser for Day 15, today.

The pic below is of the cover of a popular local form guide of the 1970’s.

So for some fun and no prizes, other than bragging rights again, try unravel some of the points listed under the pic.

This may need a team effort today.

  • The horse that ran fifth beat a subsequent July winner on his (the July winner’s) debut. Who was the July winner?
  • Can you name the top five in the pic?
  • Who were their trainers?
  • Do you recognise any jockeys?

The answer will be published on Saturday at 08h30 with the next teaser.

    Mr. Ed to be fair a poster with the initials S E should not be allowed to post on today’s puzzle ?

    1. Editor says:

      Hundred percent Pops!
      SE is excluded.
      Just as CT was excluded earlier in the week when he submitted the puzzle pic.

    Hi Editor, can we please get Selwyn Elk to share the picture of the saucy scantily clad lass that used to be on the cover page of the S.A.Racing Mirror No wonder it was called the Blue Book of Racing those days!!!
    Also the Champ Politician was on the cover with the Scott Bros advert.

    1. Editor says:

      Mike, was that Yvonne Le Roux?
      We’d rather share a pic of Politician

    Not sure who she was Ed but it was a great sight for us youngsters in 1977 !

    1. Editor says:

      No Basil

  12. Mike Schuleman says:

    The only one I know is the winner, Black Killer, Dennis Bosch up, Terry Ryan the Trainer
