Dark Jewel and her legendary dynasty

Owned and raced by Mr Peter (‘Grif’) and Mrs Daisy Tait ‘Dark Jewel’ established arguably the greatest thoroughbred racing and breeding dynasty in the long history of the sport in Australia. Outstanding thoroughbreds, both equine and human, were dynastic. Dark Jewel’s legacy included Baguette, Cabochon, Heirloom (see next page), Birthright and Betelgeuse. The Tait family is still indelibly entrenched with Sandy & Kathy Tait (‘Tie the Knot’), son Ollie Tait (‘Twin Hills Stud, Cootamundra), Jill Tait/Nivison (‘Inspired’) and grandson Jim Nivison now President of Walcha Jockey Club, all continuing to ‘fly the flag’ with the famous red and white colours.
