About

Pop was renowned for his attention to detail, his preparation of the Allard Park cinder track is one example (similar to tennis court gravel). He would water, rake and roll the surface and no one would be permitted on the track for at least three hours to allow it to settle. Everyone could tell the difference if someone else had prepared the track on a Saturday. Pop was the Handicapper; back then every Saturday was a Handicap at Brunswick. The common goal of any young competitor was to make it to A grade and work their way back to Scratch. That’s what Pop would tell you and his words encouraged all to give it their best effort.
