Reckless (Better Boy* – Impulsive by Landau*)

Reckless returns to scale after an easy win in the VRC First Robertson Handicap (2000m; $6500:00) on 17 December 1977 carrying 60.5kg with apprentice Greg Cornish in the saddle. Reckless enjoyed enduring celebrity as the ‘people’s horse’ when trained by Tommy Woodcock of Phar Lap fame when running 2nd. in successive 2 miles Cup Handicaps. (Simon Studios)
