Before finishing second to Gold and Black in the 1977 Melbourne Cup at Flemington, Australia, champion racehorse trainer Tommy Woodcock handled “Reckless” in Australia.
The 73-year-old trainer thought Reckless had a good chance of winning the 1977 Melbourne Cup because the horse had won the Sydney, Adelaide, and Brisbane cups.
In 1985, the trainer’s and the horse’s deaths occurred months apart.
