Farloe Melody beat Windsor Abbey by 3 and three quarter lengths to earn a prize of 50,000.

I am indebted to Tony Nash for the two pictures shown above which show the remarkable dog in action, and the celebration of his success afterwards.

It is particularly memorable for Tony because his father in law, John Davis, was joint owner along with his great friend Dave Tickner.
