Did you know that Nanua racecourse was originally laid by my Dad, Garrood Bright (1st Cousin to Ted Bright).

He bought a thoroughbred from F. G. White a broker in Broken Hill for Ted (Ted Bright). The mare was called Fantasy and she was by Kyclos out of Cyclon both very good horses in their day. Ted did not go ahead with the purchase so Dad kept her and trained her at Kimberley and laid the track now Nanua, this was about 1940. When Dad retired he gave her to Darby Bright (Ted's Brother) and he won many races with her up until about 1948.
