A 'CATCH DRIVE'
At the Canterbury Owners and Breeder's Cup Trials at Addington last week, Mr E T McDermott recalled that at the Burlesque Race Meeting at Addington in 1935, the late Mr Allan Matson had driven a huge bullock, hitched to an old-fashioned four-wheeled buggy, down the straight.
The bullock was a very quiet one who, at that time, was a common sight at several agricultural and pastrol shows around Canterbury.
