Biplane was winner of £13,596 including AJC & VRC Derbies, Craven Plate, etc. Raced by Mr G D Greenwood (NZ) he retired to stud in 1922 to new owner Mr T A Stirton’s Dunlop Stud at Merriwa. AJC Committeeman Mr Stirton clearly exerted considerable influence on the thoroughbred industry of the day. This situation no longer exists in the Merriwa area with the demise of the larger grazing families who dominated land ownership.
